Transpark Announces Cannon Automotive

By Laura Rogers | 

Warren County will see a hundred new jobs by next year. This after the Kentucky Trimodal Transpark announces its second new project in a month.

Cannon Automotive Solutions will build its new facility on 14 acres of the Transpark.

The $13 million investment will employ close to 100 people with hourly wages of just under $18.

Mary Cohron, chairperson of the Bowling Green-Warren County Chamber of Commerce said the economic impact will be in excess of $5 million over the next five years.

“It’s a great day - one we’ve waited for, for a long time. To have two announcements in as many weeks is a very fine thing for the state,” Cohron said.

The new facility will build materials to be used on the 2009 Ford F-150.

Cannon Automotive Solutions is scheduled to be completed by October of this year.

Just two weeks ago Howa USA announced its plans to build at the Transpark.
