Packing Unlimited Invests More Than $2 Million To Expand Its Franklin, Kentucky, Facility
“We are extremely proud of the investment our corporation has made in our Franklin facility,” said Tim Knight, plant manager for Packaging Unlimited. “The new equipment will allow our plant to be more efficient, have more capacity and provide a better quality product for our customers. The Franklin area is a great source for hard-working, productive employees, and we are glad to see our plant be able to grow in employee numbers and in overall sales.”
“Packaging Unlimited is a Kentucky success story, starting as a small business that has expanded tremendously and continues to grow and evolve,” said Gov. Steve Beshear. “We know these 20 jobs and $2 million investment will contribute a lasting impact on the Franklin community and our economy as a whole.”
The Governor’s Office said the company began in 1975 in Louisville, starting with only 20,000 square feet of rented space and two customers, but today has grown to include nine facilities in five cities throughout Kentucky and North Carolina.
“The economy is really strong in Franklin, and Packaging Unlimited’s financial commitment and the additional jobs they have added further strengthen our local manufacturing base,” said Franklin Mayor Ronnie Clark. “I am really pleased with this news and congratulate Plant Manager Tim Knight and the rest of his staff for all of their hard work and efforts.”
