LEITCHFIELD, Ky. — Water Solutions Unlimited Inc. (WSU) announced its new location in Grayson County. This $3 million investment creates eight on-site, full-time Kentucky jobs and four remote positions.
Company leaders will construct a new facility in Leitchfield that will increase the capacity to blend and manufacture chemicals needed to combat dirty water and corrosion. The company also sells phosphates and other chemicals that improve water quality.
“We are so excited to get down to Leitchfield and work with the community,” said WSU President Mike Ricks. “WSU primarily works with cities to provide phosphates for drinking and wastewater, and we’re excited to be servicing Kentucky.”
WSU was founded in 1987 around blended phosphates and became known for its knowledge in helping municipalities meet lead and copper standards. In the 1990s, WSU started blending its phosphates. In the early 2000s, the company began helping municipalities with EPA-mandated Disinfection by Products limits. This eventually led to WSU selling specialty products from other manufacturers.
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 wage assessments.
In addition, WSU can receive resources from Kentucky’s workforce service providers. Those include no-cost recruitment and job placement services, reduced-cost customized training and job-training incentives.
