Logistics provider to create 55 new jobs
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (Jan. 23, 2015) — Lt. Gov. Crit Luallen today joined company officials and local leaders to cut the ribbon on Bluegrass Supply Chain Services‘ expansion in Bowling Green.
Bluegrass Supply Chain Services, a third party logistics provider, will create 55 jobs and invest $5.2 million into the project.
Bluegrass decided to move its three Bowling Green locations into one centralized corporate office and warehouse.
The new facility on Scotty Way, next to the Bowling Green Transpark, will provide an additional 160,000-s.f. space and will allow the company to serve several new customers.
Founded in Bowling Green in 2002, Bluegrass Supply Chain Services provides value added supply chain solutions to automotive and food customers.
To encourage the investment and job growth in Warren County, the Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority preliminarily approved the company for tax incentives up to $1.25 million 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.
