Ancra Cargo cuts ribbon on new Hebron headquarters

HEBRON, Ky. — Ancra Cargo, a leading designer and manufacturer of cargo securement systems for transportation, cut the ribbon on the company’s newly renovated headquarters in Hebron. The $8 million project has created over 50 new full-time jobs, a nearly 50% increase in the company’s staff, with potential for further growth.

The $8 million renovation of the 150,000-square-foot facility introduces manufacturing capabilities in addition to existing distribution operations. The renovated facility also includes assembly lines and additional office space. The space consolidates multiple manufacturing and warehousing locations under one roof and expands the company’s product development, quality control testing and marketing capabilities. The new facility contains a dedicated multimedia resource center complete with 16 feet of planogram space, a photo lab and a soundproof studio for shooting videos and broadcasting content.

“As the industry-leading cargo securement company, Ancra Cargo is excited to continue our partnership with the State of Kentucky and the Northern Kentucky Tri-ED,” said Ancra Cargo President Larry Bethel. “I am especially proud of the Ancra Cargo team that created our growth through innovation, quality products and excellent customer service.  Our new facility in Hebron, with its expanded R&D lab, new marketing capabilities and expanded quality control department, accelerates our ability to deliver technology for the safer and more efficient transportation of goods.”

Ancra Cargo was founded in 1969 with security in mind. The company began with the mission to improve safety and security in the material handling industry and originally focused on the airline industry. Company leaders quickly realized engineered products were needed in every market segment that moved quantities of cargo and, from that, created its comprehensive product lines.
