“I am thrilled to see yet another existing Kentucky business expand in our state,” Gov. Beshear said. “This project will create dozens of good jobs for our residents and position SITEX for even more growth in the future. Congratulations to Henderson and the Western Kentucky region on yet another great investment and job-creation project.”
