SHELBYVILLE, Ky. — Pegasus Industries announces the expansion of its company headquarters in Shelbyville.
The market expansion of Pegasus’ distribution facility will create 26 full-time jobs with an investment of $738,000. The expansion will allow the company to provide custom service to Kentucky’s bourbon and spirits industry.
Pegasus will expand its current facility located at 421 Haven Hill Road in Shelbyville by almost 3,000 square feet. The project will include investing in new technology and adding machinery, shipping docks, equipment and systems to help process more orders and assist with specialized packaging and promotional items.
“We are excited to play a larger role as a more strategic partner for such a growing and important industry,” said Steve Meador, president of Pegasus Industries. “The expansion of our facility allows us to meet very unique needs with truly customized logistical solutions. When Kentucky companies committed to innovation and excellence work together anything is possible.”
For nearly 25 years, Pegasus Industries and Packaging has provided packaging and procurement services and total supply chain solutions to a wide variety of customers. In 2017, Pegasus was awarded the Kentucky Manufacturer of the Year in the mid-size category by the Kentucky Association of Manufacturers (KAM). Pegasus includes 14 facilities in four states, employing more than 400 team members.
The company’s planned investment adds to a thriving logistics and distribution sector in the commonwealth. In 2021, companies within the sector announced more than 1,000 full-time, Kentucky-resident jobs across more than 30 facility expansions and new-location projects with $181.7 million in private-sector investment in the commonwealth.
To encourage investment and job growth in the community, the Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority (KEDFA) on Thursday preliminarily approved a seven-year incentive agreement with the company under the Kentucky Business Investment program. The performance-based agreement can provide up to $210,000 in tax incentives based on the company’s investment of $738,000 and annual targets of:
- Creation and maintenance of 26 Kentucky-resident, full-time jobs across seven years; and
- Paying an average hourly wage of $22.50 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.
In addition, Pegasus Industries can receive resources from Kentucky’s workforce service providers. These include no-cost recruitment and job placement services, reduced-cost customized training and job training incentives.
