FRANKFORT, Ky. (June 4, 2012) – Kentucky Labor Cabinet Secretary Mark Brown recently presented PIC Group Inc. with a Governor’s Safety and Health Award during a ceremony at the Cane Run facility in Louisville.
The PIC Group is the maintenance contractor for the plant, which is owned by Louisville Gas & Electric.
