Bruss North America is spending $10 million to expand its corporate headquarters in Russell Springs, Kentucky. The project will create 100 jobs at the facility producing sealing systems for transmissions and engines. Bruss is based in Germany.
"Bruss North America Inc. has a longstanding relationship with the Commonwealth of Kentucky, and since locating the North American headquarters in Russell Springs, we have received key incentives that have been invaluable to the ongoing success of our local facility," said Robert Rapone, CEO of Bruss North America. "The current programs awarded to Bruss have shown Kentucky's commitment to the preservation and continued success of businesses currently operating in the state."
The Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority (KEDFA) approved Bruss North America for a $1.5 million low-interest loan. Bruss received more than $14 million in tax incentives from the former Kentucky Rural Economic Development Act for originally locating in Kentucky in 2002.
Bruss will add 71,400 square feet of manufacturing and 54,000 square feet of warehousing.
