FRANKFORT, Ky. (Sept. 14, 2018) – Gov. Matt Bevin today announced Rack-It Truck Racks Inc., a utility truck rack manufacturer with operations in California, will invest more than $1.35 million and create 25 full-time jobs to establish a location in Clinton County.
“We are pleased to welcome Rack-It Truck Racks to the commonwealth, as the company looks to better serve its customers in the Eastern US,” Gov. Bevin said. “Kentucky’s prime geographic location offers unmatched logistical advantages, and our skilled workforce and business-friendly environment provide the essential resources to support future growth. We are confident that Rack-It Truck Racks’ investment in Clinton County is the start of an enduring relationship that will benefit both the company and the south central Kentucky region.”
Rack-It leaders plan to purchase, upgrade and build out from an existing 37,000-square-foot facility on Fairgrounds Road in Albany. The project includes installing a square tube production line to manufacture heavy duty truck racks. Additional product lines could be added in the future.
