Automotive Supplier Expanding; Creating Jobs In Boone County

WABCO USA, LLC announced a $3 million reinvestment last week.

(Hebron, Ky.) – A northern Kentucky business plans to triple its employment following a large investment.

Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear announced last week that WABCO USA, LLC plans reinvest over $3 million in the distribution portion of its heavy-duty truck parts manufacturing and warehouse facility in Hebron.

WABCO’s investment will boost the company’s retail, aftermarket and original equipment manufacturer business, while improving efficiency to meet increased demand. The investment includes new equipment to enable increased volume and broader distribution throughout the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

“I want to thank WABCO USA for reinvesting in our state and planning to add 123 new, full-time jobs,” Gov. Beshear said. “This project speaks to sectors where Kentucky stands out nationally – in both the automotive and distribution-and-logistics industries – and for good reasons. Our central location within North America’s auto manufacturing belt, our experienced workforce and our deep roots in these industries all mean WABCO’s expansion is well placed and will be a boon for Northern Kentucky for years to come.”

The expansion will create 123 full-time jobs across 10 years, paying an average hourly wage of $39 plus benefits.
