Ancra Cargo Establishes Hebron, Kentucky, Headquarters

Ancra Cargo, a leading designer and manufacturer of cargo securement systems for transportation, opened its newly renovated headquarters in Hebron, Kentucky. The $8 million project is expected to create 50 jobs.

The investment in the 150,000-square-foot facility includes manufacturing capabilities in addition to existing distribution operations. The location consolidates multiple manufacturing and warehousing locations and expands the company’s product development, quality control testing and marketing capabilities.

“As the industry leading cargo securement company, Ancra Cargo is excited to continue our partnership with the State of Kentucky and the Northern Kentucky Tri-ED,” said Ancra Cargo President Larry Bethel. “I am especially proud of the Ancra Cargo team that created our growth through innovation, quality products and excellent customer service.? Our new facility in Hebron with its expanded R&D lab, new marketing capabilities and expanded quality control department accelerates our ability to deliver technology for the safer and more efficient transportation of goods.”

Ancra Cargo was founded in 1969 with security in mind. The company began with the mission to improve safety and security in the material handling industry and originally focused on the airline industry. Company leaders quickly realized engineered products were needed in every market segment that moved quantities of cargo, and from that, created its comprehensive product lines.

“The momentum in Kentucky’s manufacturing sector is continuing to grow with Ancra Cargo’s new headquarters,” noted Governor Andy Beshear. “Ancra Cargo is doing great work in the industry and is providing quality jobs for Kentuckians. I want to congratulate the company’s leadership on their new headquarters and thank them for continuing to grow Ancra Cargo’s presence in the commonwealth and the Hebron community.”

“We are thrilled the company will retain current local jobs and create new high-quality jobs to serve Northern Kentucky families,” added Northern Kentucky Tri-ED CEO Lee Crume. “Ancra plays a critical role in the?supply chain and transportation industries?in Northern Kentucky and North America.”
