sumoLEXINGTON Ky. (June 1, 2015) — Gov. Steve Beshear joined company officials and other local leaders today to break ground on Sumitomo Electric Wiring Systems’ new facility in Lexington.

Sumitomo, a leading supplier of wire harnesses, components and electronics to the automotive industry, is expected to create up to 10 new jobs and invest nearly $8.5 million into the project.

The company’s two current operations in Lexington—Bluegrass Business Park and Baker Court—will be consolidated into the new facility. Sumitomo plans to move its 28 employees to the new 30-acre site by the end of the year.
