In Park City and Shepherdsville
FRANKFORT, Ky. (June 28, 2017) — Bluegrass Supply Chain Services LLC, a third-party logistics provider for the automotive and food and beverage industries, will invest more than $3.35 million and create 51 jobs at two locations: a new operation in Edmonson County and upgrades at its Bullitt County facility.
Bluegrass Supply Chain Services will invest more than $1.78 million to lease and upfit a building in Park City for office and warehouse space, and more than $1.57 million for similar upgrades in Shepherdsville. The projects will create 27 full-time jobs in Park City and 24 full-time positions in Shepherdsville.
Headquartered in Bowling Green and founded in 2002, BSCS provides warehousing, quality support, light assembly and transportation management services to customers across four states. In addition to its Bowling Green and Shepherdsville locations, BSCS operates a 49-job facility in Russellville. The new jobs will bring its total Kentucky employment to about 590.
To encourage the investment and job growth in the community, the Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority (KEDFA) in May preliminarily approved BSCS for tax incentives up to $300,000 for each project through the Kentucky Business Investment program. The performance-based incentive allows a company to keep a portion of its investment over the agreement term through corporate income tax credits and wage assessments by meeting job and investment targets.
In addition, BSCS can receive resources from the Kentucky Skills Network. Through the Kentucky Skills Network, companies can receive no-cost recruitment and job placement services, reduced-cost customized training and job training incentives. In fiscal 2016, the Kentucky Skills Network provided training for nearly 95,000 Kentuckians and 5,000 companies from a variety of industry sectors.
