FRANKFORT, Ky. (Jan. 4, 2018) – Lynx Labeling Inc., which develops and sells custom labeling machinery and software primarily to the meat and poultry industries, will build a $500,000 facility and create 10 jobs in Glasgow, Gov. Matt Bevin announced today.
“Lynx Labeling’s decision to build a new facility and hire more people in Glasgow is further testament to the state’s favorable business environment,” Gov. Bevin said. “We are grateful that another high-tech company has taken advantage of Kentucky’s many logistical and workforce advantages. We appreciate Lynx’s investment in our state and look forward to what the future holds for this company and the community of Glasgow.”
The company also plans to invest $65,000 in equipment and $25,000 in startup-related activities at its new 12,000-square-foot Barren County facility, which will be located in the Highland Glen Industrial Park. The additional space and 10 new full-time employees will allow the company to keep pace with growing customer orders. Lynx plans to break ground in March and finish construction by summer 2018.
“Lynx Labeling has done a great job meeting an increase in demand over the last couple years,” said Billy Jones, president of Lynx Labeling. “We’re excited this expanded facility will allow us to continue to deliver the innovative and industry leading solutions our customers have come to depend on.”
