MURRAY, Ky. (AP) - Officials say a manufacturer of electrical power distribution connectors plans to locate in western Kentucky and create 150 jobs.

A statement from Gov. Andy Beshear says Hollobus Technologies Inc. is investing $2.25 million to move its headquarters and some operations to a former Briggs & Stratton plant in Murray.

Officials say the Kentucky location will produce a new product line that is an alternative to electrical cabling for large industrial projects.

The company has partnered with Murray State University to establish a pipeline for workers and said it intends to focus on hiring veterans.
