FRANKFORT, Ky. (Dec. 11, 2017) – Gov. Matt Bevin today announced Takigawa Corp. Japan, a flexible packaging and high-performance films producer, will create 180 full-time jobs with a nearly $46 million investment to locate a manufacturing operation in Bardstown, its first in the United States.
“Kentucky’s food and beverage industry has grown consistently in recent years, and that momentum continued with the addition of Takigawa,” said Gov. Bevin. “I commend the economic development teams at both the state and local level for helping to bring this amazing company to Kentucky. This will be a fantastic addition to the corporate community in Nelson County. We are grateful to Takigawa for this decision and welcome them to the commonwealth.”
Takigawa will establish its first US manufacturing operation with the construction of a 180,000-square-foot facility on a greenfield site in Bardstown in an effort to meet growing demand. The operation will primarily serve high-impact packaging for high-impact brands.
