German-based company to create 110 jobs in Kentucky

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) – Kentucky officials say a German-based auto supplier will create 110 jobs in Bowling Green as part of the company’s $130 million investment.

Gov. Steve Beshear’s office says the steel processor will build a 250,000-square-foot cold-rolling steel manufacturing facility at the Kentucky Transpark in Warren County in south-central Kentucky. The plant will serve the company’s North American automotive industry customers.

The investment by the Bilstein Group was announced Wednesday.

Beshear’s office says that since January 2013, 29 German-owned facilities have announced new locations or expansions in Kentucky. It resulted in more than 1,200 full-time jobs through a collective investment of more than $488 million.

Overall, the governor’s office says Kentucky is home to more than 445 foreign-owned companies from 33 nations, employing more than 89,000 people.
