US: Kemmerich to start $12.2m Kentucky operation
Automotive metal processor, Kemmerich USA, is to establish a manufacturing operation and its American headquarters in Calloway County, Kentucky, creating 120 new, full-time jobs in a US$12.2m investment.
"We chose Murray after a lengthy search throughout the US," said Kemmerich CEO, Thomas Bergen. "Three key factors were important to us: cost of production, workforce and logistics. We see Murray offers lower costs of production, a highly flexible and qualified workforce and a favourable location.
To encourage investment and job creation in Murray, the Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority preliminarily approved the company for tax incentives of up to US$3m through the Kentucky Business Investment programme.
The performance-based incentive allows a company to keep a portion of its investment during the term of the agreement through corporate income tax credits and wage assessments, by meeting job and investment targets.
