FRANKFORT, Ky. (May 22, 2017) – Gov. Matt Bevin today joined Camtech Manufacturing Solutions LLC, a factory automation, machining and custom engineering services provider, in Science Hill to opening a new headquarters, which already allowed the company to grow employment from five to 20.
“One of Kentucky’s great strengths is our expertise in engineering and manufacturing,” said Gov. Bevin. “With companies like Camtech growing and adding jobs, the commonwealth is expanding the pool of resources needed to help manufacturers plan, implement and begin production. I am grateful to Camtech for their significant investment in this new facility and look forward to seeing how their innovative, forward-looking approach will continue to transform Kentucky and the world, for years to come.”
Among its many services, Camtech designs, engineers, builds and installs robotic cells that automate production for factories. The custom-built 16,200 square-foot facility in Science Hill provides more than twice the production and engineering space as its previous building in Somerset and nearly four times the office space.
The additional room is translating into more customers, company revenue and employees. As well, Camtech is expanding its parallel lines of business, including machining of custom parts, fabrication of factory-floor structures – such as decks, ladders, enclosures and mezzanines – design services and on-site engineering support for a range of manufacturing industries.
