Northern Kentucky is home to ‘who’s who’ of corporations

For plenty of business people, nothing says Big Time quite like “Fortune 500.”

MRNK-tag-artThe annual list of the 500 largest publicly traded companies by the revered business monthly has become the ultimate “Who’s Who” of American business. The Greater Cincinnati metro region, which includes seven Northern Kentucky counties, is home to eight companies that are regulars on the list on the Ohio side of the river and five more biggies in Kentucky including No. 516 Ashland Global Holdings of Covington, with annual revenues of $4.9 billion. General Cable of Highland Heights most recently ranked No. 603 with annual revenues of almost $4 billion.

Regardless of their standing on “the” list, Northern Kentucky is home to dozens of formidable headquarters and corporations that keep the economic engine humming and continually attract more talent and opportunities.

Many Northern Kentucky businesses have proven their staying power and impact on the local economies they serve. For example, Glier’s Meats, tucked off of Pike Street since 1946 in Covington, produces a signature product called goetta. A German breakfast sausage that isn’t widely known elsewhere in the country, goetta is a cult classic in the region.

Newly in Covington from Blue Ash, Ohio, is CTI Clinical Trial & Consulting. It leases space in the RiverCenter tower, owned by real estate development giant, Corporex, which also calls the 18-story landmark home.

Many of the headquarters based in Northern Kentucky are in the logistics, manufacturing and food sectors.

Indy Honeycomb, for instance, is based in Covington and creates innovative honeycomb products used in important products like aircraft engines and power generation turbines.

The Mazak Corp. in Florence is a global leader in the manufacturing of advanced technology machine-tool solutions including Multi-Tasking, HYBRID Multi-Tasking, 5-axis, milling, turning, CNC controls and automation.

Maxim Crane Works in Wilder is the country’s largest crane rental and “lifting services” company. It announced plans in June to spend $4.7 million on a new office building for a company that has its primary office near Pittsburgh.

Kenton County, the state’s third largest county, boasts about its production of Airheads, the candy produced by Perfetti Van Melle. The Netherlands-based confectioner has its U.S. headquarters in Erlanger.
