Kansas – What Constitutes Doing Business

KansasAlbers Finishing & Solutions, LLC v. RK Inc., Case No. 18-1225, decided 12/4/18. The US District Court, District of Kansas ruled that a Missouri corporation was not doing business in Kansas pursuant to Sec. 17-7932 of the Kansas corporation law where, pursuant to a contract consummated outside of Kansas, it manufactured equipment outside of Kansas which its employees installed in Kansas. The only activity that did not fall within the statute was the training of the buyer’s employees on the use of the equipment. However, within the facts of this case that activity did not constitute doing business.
