Will create up to 299 jobs in Northern Kentucky
FRANKFORT, Ky. (Sept. 10, 2014) — Teespring Inc., which manufactures custom T-shirts used for fundraising campaigns, plans to open a facility in Hebron, Gov. Steve Beshear announced today.
The 105,000-square-foot facility, which is scheduled to open early next year on Aviation Blvd. will create up to 299 jobs in Northern Kentucky, with Teespring investing nearly $22 million in the project.
“Teespring is very excited to launch our first production and fulfillment facility in Northern Kentucky,” said Walker Williams, CEO of Teespring. “We believe the talent in this area in the fields of technology, maintenance, production and fulfillment, combined with the cultural alignment of Teespring and the community, lends itself to the perfect opportunity of creating a world-class facility.”
To encourage the investment and job growth in Hebron, the Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority preliminarily approved the company for tax incentives of up to $2.5 through the Kentucky Business Investment program. The performance-based incentive allows a company to keep a portion of its investment over the term of the agreement through corporate income tax credits and wage assessments by meeting job and investment targets.
