Commercial Specialty Truck Holdings ( CSTH ), based in Cynthiana, Ky., will expand its concrete mixer drum fabrication facility in Greensburg, Ky.

GREENSBURG, Ky.  Commercial Specialty Truck Holdings (CSTH), a concrete and refuse truck manufacturer based in Cynthiana, Ky., will invest $2 million to expand its concrete mixer drum fabrication facility in Greensburg. 

The company is investing to add painting capacity and capability at the plant so that mixer drums can be fabricated and painted at the Green County facility. CSTH will add 15 employees to the 25 working at the plant now, bringing the company’s total headcount in Kentucky to nearly 300.

Commercial Specialty Trucks Holdings manufactures products for the challenging environments of the ready-mix concrete and refuse industries and fleet operators across North America. CSTH is headquartered in Cynthiana, KY with additional facilities in Greensburg, Breckenridge and Bridgeport, Texas, Norfolk, Va., Tampa, Fla., and Burlington, N.C. 

The company is parent to Continental Mixers, E-Z Pack Refuse trucks, Dynamic Towing and Manufacturing, as well as One Source Parts.

“We are thrilled to be making additional investments here in Kentucky,” said Nathan Nedley, President of CSTH. “We’re so thankful for our partnerships with Kentucky State Senate President Pro Tempore David Givens, former State Rep. Brandon Reed, Congressman Brett Guthrie, Green County Judge/Executive John H. Frank and the Greensburg Green County Industrial Foundation.

“Kentucky’s New Markets Tax Credit, paired with the federal New Markets program, helped to put us in the position to make capital-intensive investments in heavy equipment to get our Cynthiana and Greensburg operations up and running as well as grow jobs in this latest expansion in the Commonwealth,” Nedley said.

In 2022, the company worked with the Green County Industrial Foundation to locate its concrete mixer drum operation at 147 Tech Way in Greensburg.

“CSTH is an important employer and partner for Green County and the reinvestment is very exciting,” Sen. Givens said. “The collaboration between the Green County Technology Center and CSTH is a model for the growth of good manufacturing jobs. Students from Green County and Campbellsville schools are gaining valuable welding skills that are in-demand in today’s job market.”

The plant expansion will allow CSTH to ship finished mixer drums directly to customers as well as to its Cynthiana location, leading to reduced costs and shortened lead times.

“We are finishing the planning phase and will soon enter our heavy equipment acquisition phase thanks in large part to the New Markets program. We estimate that the plant expansion will be completed in mid-2025,” Nedley said.
