Northern Kentucky expansion adding up to 42 jobs

HEBRON, Ky. (AP) — A northern Kentucky plant is expanding its facility and expects to add up to 42 new jobs.

Bonfiglioli (bon-fee-lee-OH’-lee) USA produces mobile transmission for mobile and self-propelled machines. It has operated an 80,000-square-foot facility in Hebron near the Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky Airport since 2007 and currently employs about 90 people there.

The location is also the company’s North American headquarters. The parent company is based in Bologna, Italy and has more than 3,000 employees in 17 countries.

Lt. Gov. Crit Luallen, local leaders and company officials cut the ribbon on the expansion on Thursday. The expansion includes a new production line of planetary gearboxes for mobile machinery, which is used to support the construction, mining, agricultural and forestry industries.

The state has given preliminary approval to tax incentives for the company.
