MADISONVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- A western Kentucky facility that produces commercial firewood is expanding in Madisonville, adding 39 jobs.

Gov. Steve Beshear's office says B&K Wood Products LLC will invest $1.2 million to open a new facility for production, offices and storage.

The governor's office says the company plans to purchase new space that will allow it to make and store product to fulfill orders from companies such as Kroger, Wal-Mart, Lowe's, Home Depot and others.

A news release from Beshear's office said the company was founded in 1955 and produces firewood, cross ties, crane mats, mulch and other products. It operates on a 40-acre site in Madisonville with more than 130 employees.

The state has approved tax incentives of up to $400,000.
