BRUSS North America, a division of Germany-based BRUSS, has begun an expansion that is expected to triple the size of its Russell Springs, Kentucky, facility, with an additional 71,400 square feet of manufacturing space and 54,000 square feet of warehousing space. Kentucky economic development officials state that the company will add 150 new employees to its existing work force of 165 in what will be a $24 million project over the next five years. The expansion, which should be completed by fall of 2008, will enable BRUSS North America to manufacture automotive valve covers, seals, and gaskets. The Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority (KEDFA) has approved a funding package worth $2.5 million to aid the project.
