Canadian manufacturer to create up to 265 jobs in Kentucky

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky officials say a Canadian manufacturer plans to create up to 265 full-time jobs with a facility planned in eastern Kentucky.

Gov. Matt Bevin says Dajcor Aluminum plans to invest nearly $19.6 million to locate its first U.S. operation near Hazard. The company manufactures extruded and fabricated aluminum products.

Officials say the company plans to locate in the former American Woodmark facility in Perry County's Coalfields Industrial Park. Retrofitting and setup will begin immediately and operations are scheduled to begin by the end of 2019.

To encourage the investment, the Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority has preliminarily approved the company for up to $4 million in tax incentives through the Kentucky Business Investment program.
