INFAC Corporation, a producer and worldwide supplier of mechanical cables and electronics components for the automotive industry, has announced plans to locate a distribution and sales center in Taylor County.
The project, which will employ approximately 75 people within two years of operation, will support North American original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).
The South Korean-owned company expects to begin manufacturing emergency brake cables at its 52,500-s.f. facility, located in the Campbellsville Industrial Park, in the fourth quarter of 2008. The building previously housed Fleetwood Enterprises, a California-based company that closed its Campbellsville plant last year.
“This community has a lot to offer a business like ours,” said Jay Choi, director of North American Operations, INFAC Corp. “There are three fundamental reasons why INFAC Corp. chose the Campbellsville-Taylor County site – geography, resources and atmosphere. It is centrally located among the majority of the U.S. auto manufacturers, offers available facilities and workforce familiar with the automotive markets and it just feels safe here.”
INFAC, established in 1969 in Ansan, Korea, also operates seven manufacturing plants in Korea, China, India and Turkey and has affiliates in Japan and Europe.
The Campbellsville project represents a capital investment of $500,000.
