Superb IPC is investing $400,000 and creating 20 new jobs in Shelbyville, Kentucky. The company will expand its headquarters there and invest in advanced technology equipment to boost efficiency.
"We are delighted that Governor Beshear and the Commonwealth of Kentucky, as well as Fifth Third Bank, have partnered with us in our effort to reestablish our Shelbyville facility as the largest, most flexible, and capable powder coaters in the region," said Michael Hesketh, president and partner of Superb IPC. "Their support was key to our ability to meet competitive challenges from outside of the region, and to provide the superior cost and service our customers need to grow their businesses. Continued strategic investments in our employees, our equipment, and technology assure our long-term success here in Kentucky."
The Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority has preliminarily approved Superb IPC for tax incentives up to $400,000 through the Kentucky Business Investment program.
Industrial powder coating producer Superb IPC supplies the metal stamping, fabricating, roll forming, and die casting industries. The new equipment will cut powder usage and energy consumption.
