Mount Vernon, Ky. — A company that manufactures metal compressed air sprayers plans to open a production plant in eastern Kentucky that will create up to 100 jobs, officials said.
Chapin International Inc. plans to relocate part of existing operations in New York and Ohio to the facility in Rockcastle County, Gov. Andy Beshear said Tuesday in a statement. The 175,000-square-foot plant will produce and distribute sprayers for a variety of uses.
Officials said the Mount Vernon location will help the company better serve customers throughout North America.
“This is another example of people coming together to build a better Kentucky and create an even stronger economy,” Beshear said.
The manufacturing plant plans to start operating by end of this year, officials said.
