Avure Technologies Opens Global Headquarters-Operations Center In Northern Kentucky

Avure Technologies, a company that develops high-pressure processing systems for the removal of foodborne pathogens in packaged foods, invested $3 million to bring its global headquarters to Erlanger, Kentucky.

The company’s facility on Airport Exchange Boulevard will be the site of its world-class HPP food research lab and customer service center. The company chose to relocate its food lab and headquarters to Erlanger to be closer to its equipment manufacturing location in Ohio.

“Northern Kentucky is a great location and a very business-friendly environment,” said Jeff Williams, CEO of Avure Technologies. “This site will enable us to work efficiently with our food manufacturers to develop products that satisfy consumer demand for more natural foods without artificial additives.”

To encourage the investment and job growth in northern Kentucky, the Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority preliminarily approved the company for tax incentives up to $300,000 through the Kentucky Business Investment program. The performance-based incentive allows a company to keep a portion of its investment over the term of the agreement through corporate income tax credits and wage assessments by meeting job and investment targets.

“Avure develops a unique and exciting product, and we’re proud that the company chose to bring its headquarters and research facilities to northern Kentucky,” said Governor Steve Beshear. “Kentucky continues to create products of the future. Avure’s decision to locate here will help us to showcase our innovative spirit to the world.”

“The opening of Avure’s new headquarters and food science lab in northern Kentucky is a strong start to 2015,” said Kris Knochelmann, Kenton County judge-executive and chairman of Northern Kentucky Tri-ED. “This is exactly the type of facility that we want to attract to the region and builds on northern Kentucky’s reputation as an ideal location for office headquarters and food research and development facilities.”
