PARIS, Ky. — SendCutSend, a manufacturer of customized laser-cut metal parts, recently opened its $3.9 million operations in Paris, creating 75 full-time jobs for Kentuckians.
SendCutSend located in an existing nearly 37,000-s.f. facility on Cleveland Drive in Paris to provide the company with improved logistics capabilities for customers throughout the Midwest and along the East Coast. Jobs created through this project include CAD engineers, production specialists, and laser technicians, among others. The company already has added 10 of the 75 announced positions, and its leaders expect the operation to be fully staffed by the third financial quarter of 2022.
“We love Bourbon County for the people, climate, and most importantly, logistics. The Paris facility allows us to reach more than 50% of the United States in two days with our shipping carriers,” said Jim Belosic, CEO, SendCutSend. “Bourbon County is a great place to have a business. We’ve been able to acquire talented and skilled employees and look forward to continuing to grow our facility and create jobs.”
SendCutSend launched in 2019 and is headquartered in Reno, Nevada. The company was established with the goal to simplify the metal manufacturing process and provide an avenue for customers to create custom, one-off parts with quick turnaround times without the expense of buying in bulk. SendCutSend works with a variety of metals, including stainless steel, aluminum, titanium, AR500 steel, copper, and brass, as well as carbon fiber. The company’s services also include precision bending and tapping.
The Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority (KEDFA) in April preliminarily approved a 10-year incentive agreement with the company under the Kentucky Business Investment program. The performance-based agreement can provide up to $800,000 in tax incentives based on the company’s investment of $3.94 million and annual targets of:
- Creation and maintenance of 75 Kentucky-resident, full-time jobs across 10 years; and
- Paying an average hourly wage of $21 including benefits across those jobs.
By meeting its annual targets over the agreement term, the company can be eligible to keep a portion of the new tax revenue it generates. The company may claim eligible incentives against its income tax liability and/or wage assessments.
