KCC Companies Expands Tooele, Utah, Factory

Roofing system products manufacturer KCC Companies will invest $42 million to expand its operations in Tooele, Utah. The project is expected to create 120 new jobs in the next 12 years.

The company may receive up to 25% of the additional state taxes it will pay over the 12-year life of the agreement in the form of a Utah Legislature-authorized Rural Economic Development Tax Increment Finance tax credit. Each year that KCC meets the criteria in its contract with the state, it will qualify for a portion of the total tax credit.

“We’re very excited to further our expansion efforts in Utah,” said Anthony Balbach, KCC CFO. “By expanding our presence in Utah, we hope to establish a long-standing foothold in the Western United States market and further our lineup of healthy building initiative HVAC products and Roof Curbs. As a 100% employee-owned company, we also look forward to welcoming new ‘employee owners’ and continuing our maturation as a premier technological and exceptional quality manufacturer.”

Formerly Kentuckiana Curb Company, Inc., KCC is a 40-year-old employee-owned company dedicated to providing complete design, manufacturing, installation, and service for commercial and residential heating, ventilation, and air conditioning.

“Tooele City did a tremendous job in supporting this long-standing corporate partner as the company increased its investment in Tooele. The city helped them identify suitable real estate, assisted in a re-zone of the property, and is funding electrical infrastructure to the site,” said Theresa A. Foxley, president and CEO of the Economic Development Corporation of Utah (EDCUtah). “KCC’s confidence in Tooele City as a partner moving forward will pay dividends as they expand in the West.”

“Tooele City is thrilled to welcome the expansion of KCC to our community. KCC is an employee stock ownership plan company. They truly invest in their workforce, not only in high wages but by granting their employees joint ownership in the company,” said Jared Stewart, economic development coordinator at Tooele City. “KCC’s commitment to their employees and low water use reflect the values of Tooele City residents. They will be successful in our community, and we look forward to further collaboration as they expand.”
