Construction Underway On $60 Million Kentucky Operation

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Kentuckiana Curb Co. Inc. has begun construction of the company’s new $60 million operation in Simpsonville, a project expected to create 700 jobs, Gov. Andy Beshear says.

Founded in Kentucky in 1977, KCC designs and manufactures commercial heating and air conditioning equipment, Beshear's office said in a news release Thursday.

In response to an increased need for production space, the project includes a 380,000-square-foot (35,303-square-meter) manufacturing facility and a 40,000-square-foot (3,716-square-meter) research and development center.
