German Company Locating Plant in Murray

By Associated Press | 

A German company is locating its U.S. headquarters and a manufacturing facility in western Kentucky, producing 120 full-time jobs for Calloway County.

Gov. Steve Beshear's office says automotive supplier Kemmerich will invest $12.2 million in the project and has received preliminary approval for up to $3 million in tax incentives.

Kemmerich CEO Thomas Bergen said Wednesday the plant will be in a good position to supply auto plants in the Midwest and South.

It's the second German-owned company to announce plans to locate in Murray recently. Beshear announced in late November that iwis will establish its first U.S. plant in Murray.
