With nearly 140 years of experience, Chapin International knows a thing or two about manufacturing. When the company was looking for room to grow, they invested more than $22 million to locate new facilities in Danville, Ky., and Mount Vernon, Ky.
Chapin International is a leader in the design, manufacturing and marketing of high quality compressed air sprayers and hand sprayers used in home, garden, commercial landscape, agricultural and industrial applications. Its Kentucky investments added nearly 675,000 square feet along with 300 jobs.
“Our Kentucky employees are proving to be the biggest asset to this new plant, with good attendance and a willingness to get the job done,” said Jim Campbell, CEO of Chapin International. “We are accomplishing our goals ahead of schedule. With the help of these employees, we will be well-positioned to strengthen our competitiveness and grow further in the global market.”
Chapin’s expanded presence in Kentucky will allow the company to better capitalize on the state’s strategic location to get products to consumers quickly. As the logistics center of the eastern U.S., the commonwealth is located within 600 miles of two-thirds of the nation’s population.
