Ashland Alliance

President’s Report – May 26, 2017

A Record-Breaking Year!

It was a banner day in Kentucky!  Earlier today, Governor  Bevin announced a record-breaking year in economic development.  Prior to this year, the most ever invested in development in Kentucky was $5.1 billion dollars.  As of today, Kentucky has seen $5.8 billion this year!   This development brings more than 9,500 jobs to the state.

A large part of this investment, is, of course, the location of Braidy Industries in Greenup County.   Based on the Governor's announcement. Braidy Industries will put an additional $35-40 million in payroll in the region.  Things are certainly looking up for our region.

The Ashland Alliance hopes keep up this momentum and believes there is no better time to be a member of our organization.  We are here to serve you and your needs.  Please let us know how we can help!
