Lumber operation to locate in Nelson County

BOSTON, Ky. (AP) – Kentucky officials say a lumber company plans to create at least 30 full-time jobs in Nelson County to produce hardwood for export to Asia.

Gov. Matt Bevin’s office said Monday that Legend Lumber Lee Corp. plans to open the operation in a shuttered hardwood lumber concentration yard in Boston, Kentucky.

The company intends to invest nearly $3.5 million in the operation.

The governor’s office says the facility is expected to be fully operational by the end of 2017. The company will bring in green lumber for kiln and air drying, sorting, grading and shipping.

The company is taking over at a facility that closed in 2009.
