Company also will expand research, development operations in the state
FRANKFORT, Ky. (May 13, 2015) — Gov. Steve Beshear today announced that Halton Group is planning a major expansion of its headquarters in south central Kentucky. Halton currently employs 180 people in Kentucky.
Halton Group, which creates industrial ventilation systems, plans to invest $3.7 million into the project.
Halton Group currently operates a manufacturing facility in Scottsville, with the company’s headquarters located in the small business accelerator at Western Kentucky University. The company is growing to the point where it plans to move out of the incubator and build its own standalone headquarters next to the manufacturing operation. Halton Group also will build a new research and development facility on its Allen County campus.
Construction on the headquarters and R&D center will begin this summer and is expected to be operational early next year.
