Gov. Beshear Announces Manufacturing Expansion in Boone Co.

The expansion will create 14 new jobs.

(Hebron, Ky.) – A manufacturing business in northern Kentucky is expanding.

Governor Andy Beshear announced this week that Skilcraft LLC plans to invest $8.4 million to expand their operation in Hebron.

The $8.4 million project will see Skilcraft’s current operation expand by over 22,000 square feet, bringing the total facility to over 54,000 square feet.

The additional space will allow for increased production capacity and new equipment that will support production of fabricated parts and metal components for the aerospace industry.

With the expansion comes the creation of 14 manufacturing jobs.

“I am always excited to see companies expand their operations here in Kentucky, especially a company like Skilcraft, which has been serving the commonwealth and its workforce for nearly six decades,” Gov. Beshear said. “Our state’s economic momentum is not possible without the support and investments from companies like Skilcraft, and I cannot thank them enough for their continued belief in the commonwealth and what we have to offer. I look forward to the company’s continued success.”
