SIMPSONVILLE, Ky. (KT) – Kentuckiana Curb Co. Inc., a manufacturer of commercial HVAC products doing business as KCC Manufacturing, had a groundbreaking for the company’s new $60 million operation in Shelby County, which will create 700 new jobs.
Due to an increased need for production space, KCC is building a 380,000-square-foot manufacturing facility and a 40,000-square-foot research and development operation on 80 acres along Buck Creek Road in Simpsonville.
The project will boost the company’s HVAC equipment production, as well as roof curbs, curb adapters and other sheet metal products for roof-mounted air conditioning equipment. KCC’s customer base has grown in recent years and includes agritech-related businesses, health care facilities, school districts, retail, hotels and restaurants across the U.S. Company leaders anticipate construction will be completed by late next year.
“The future is in our hands, and I am confident in the growth and evolution of future products,” said KCC Manufacturing CEO Al Fiorini.
“As we celebrate Manufacturing Month across the commonwealth, new and expanding companies within the sector continue to move their projects ahead with a vision for the future,” Gov. Andy Beshear said. “I want to once again thank KCC Manufacturing for this significant commitment to our state, and I congratulate the company on today’s major step forward toward creating hundreds of quality job opportunities for Kentucky families.”
