Post Glover LifeLink Inc. $3.9 Million Expansion In Boone Co.

This expansion will create 15 new full-time jobs.

(Frankfort, Ky.) - On Monday, Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin announced a $3.9 million expansion for PG LifeLink, Inc. in Boone County, which will create 15 new full-time jobs. 

“This is an exciting season for PG LifeLink, an outstanding company that has seen demand for its products rapidly increase in recent years,” said Gov. Bevin. “We are grateful for PG LifeLink’s ongoing commitment to investing in the commonwealth and the company’s recent decision to expand in Northern Kentucky. We look forward to more positive growth in the years ahead.”

Boone County's PG LifeLink expansion will include a 12,800-square-foot addition to its existing 20,000-square-foot facility.This added space would help the substantial growth over the past three years to maintain manufacturing and warehousing operations.

“Our growing business demanded that we have more space to keep up with the growth.  Staying in Northern Kentucky was key to our continuing success,” said Judy Kathman, president of PG LifeLink. “Being able to expand on our location minimizes our down time during the expansion. I speak for myself and all of our employees when I say we greatly appreciate this consideration and look forward to hiring more Kentuckians and continued growth.”

Senator John Schickel, of Union, said the project is the result of policies to make Kentucky more business friendly.

“This expansion is great news for Northern Kentucky,” Sen. Schickel said. “The continued investment in our region is a prime example of the sustained economic growth our state has seen as a direct result of laws passed by the General Assembly. I would like to thank those involved for continuing to choose Erlanger to conduct their business.”

Boone County Judge-Executive, Gary Moore, expressed gratitude for the company’s commitment to the community.

“I congratulate PG LifeLink on its expansion in Northern Kentucky,” Crume said. “We are proud to support a company that manufactures equipment made in Boone County that is provided to thousands of hospitals throughout the world.”

Lee Crume, president and CEO of Northern Kentucky Tri-ED, said the company is a point of pride for the region.

“I congratulate PG LifeLink on its expansion in Northern Kentucky,” Crume said. “We are proud to support a company that manufactures equipment made in Boone County that is provided to thousands of hospitals throughout the world.”

The Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority (KEDFA) preliminarily approved a 10-year incentive agreement with the company under the Kentucky Business Investment program to encourage the investment and job growth. 

This performance-based agreement can provide up to $150,000 in tax incentives based on the company’s investment of $3.9 million and annual targets of:

  • Creation and maintenance of 15 Kentucky-resident, full-time jobs across 10 years;
  • Paying an average hourly wage of $18 including benefits across those jobs.

LifeLink can claim eligible incentives against its income tax liability and/or wage assessments if meets its annual targets over the agreement term.

KEDFA also approved PG LifeLink up to $37,500 in tax incentives through the Kentucky Enterprise Initiative Act (KEIA), which allows approved companies to recoup Kentucky sales and use tax on construction costs, building fixtures, equipment used in research and development and electronic processing.

Additionally, PG LifeLink can receive resources from the Kentucky Skills Network. Companies can receive no-cost recruitment and job placement services, reduced-cost customized training and job training incentives by pairing with the Kentucky Skills Network.
