DENSO Air Systems has selected Hopkinsville, Kentucky, for a new manufacturing plant that will create 105 jobs in the coming years. The Japanese company will invest more than $4.2 million in the expansion.
"Not only do we look forward to expanding our North American operations, but we are also genuinely excited to become part of the Hopkinsville community," said Jerry McGuire, president of DENSO Air Systems Michigan. "We are confident we chose the right location for our third manufacturing facility in North America and we have great confidence in the outstanding work force in Kentucky."
The Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority has preliminarily approved DENSO Air Systems for tax incentives through the Kentucky Business Investment program.
DENSO produces aluminum pipes, tubes and hoses for the automotive industry. The facility will be operation by the middle of the summer.
