The issue: Uflex announcement
Our view: New plant may be first of many
Kentucky is entering into a new arena of job growth and Elizabethtown has been chosen to lead the way.
The announcement that Uflex Ltd. plans to build a new manufacturing facility to produce polyester film packaging products is good news for the local employment picture. It initially will mean a $90 million investment and 125 jobs by December 2012 with both figures doubling by 2015.
And there’s much more to celebrate.
