Glass fiber manufacturer to expand plant, will add 32 jobs

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) – A statement from Gov. Matt Bevin’s office says Superior Composites has broken ground on an expansion at its Vanceburg facility that will add 20,000 square feet and 32 jobs.

The plant in Lewis County manufactures glass fiber reinforcements that are used in a variety of markets including automotive and marine components and specialty pipe.

Bevin said in the statement on Monday that the expansion is a sign that Kentucky is still “a national leader in manufacturing growth.”

Superior Composites CEO Kenn Moritz says the $2.5 million expansion will bring the facility to 156,000 square feet and will help the company meet the growing needs of its customers. Company officials say they expect the project to be completed by the end of summer.
