ELKTON, Ky. (AP) -- A manufacturer of custom coolers and freezers has expanded to Todd County in southern Kentucky.
Gov. Steve Beshear's office says Custom Cooler Inc. is creating 75 jobs and investing nearly $5.8 million in the manufacturing facility.
The project is Custom Cooler's second manufacturing facility in the U.S.
The 117,000-square-foot operation in Todd County will serve customers throughout the eastern and central United States and internationally.
Beshear's office says Kentucky beat out three other states for the investment.
Custom Cooler was established in California in 2006. It serves more than 300 domestic and international customers in the food industry.
To encourage the investment, the state gave preliminary approval for the company to receive performance-based tax incentives of up to $1.5 million.
