Only six months after opening its manufacturing plant in Bowling Green’s Kentucky Transpark, American Howa Kentucky has announced plans to expand the facility.
AHK’s expansion project will add 56,000 s.f. to its existing 81,294-s.f. facility, and will house three new manufacturing lines. The company manufactures various products for the automotive industry, including headliners, dash insulators, and other interior items.
The expansion represents a $12 million investment and will result in the addition of 24 new jobs.
“The fact that American Howa Kentucky is announcing an expansion so soon after its grand opening demonstrates the positive business climate that’s been cultivated in the South Central Kentucky region,” said Larry Hayes, interim secretary of the state’s Economic Development Cabinet.
