Water Solutions Unlimited Plans Leitchfield, Kentucky, Manufacturing Plant
The company will construct a new facility that will increase the capacity to blend and manufacture chemicals needed to combat dirty water and corrosion. The company also sells phosphates and other chemicals that improve water quality.
“We are so excited to get down to Leitchfield and work with the community,” said WSU President Mike Ricks. “WSU primarily works with cities to provide phosphates for drinking and wastewater, and we’re excited to be servicing Kentucky.”
KEDFA approved WSU for up to $50,000 in tax incentives through the Kentucky Enterprise Initiative Act (KEIA) based on the company’s investment of $3 million. KEIA allows approved companies to recoup Kentucky sales and use tax on construction costs, building fixtures, equipment used in research and development and electronic processing.
By meeting its annual targets over the agreement term, the company can be eligible to keep a portion of the new tax revenue it generates. The company may claim eligible incentives against its income tax liability and/or wage assessments.
“I want to thank the leaders at Water Solutions Unlimited for this commitment to the commonwealth and the Grayson County community,” Governor Andy Beshear noted. “Kentucky’s manufacturing sector continues to grow, and it is great to see WSU be a part of that momentum. Together, we can build a better Kentucky where your kids and mine will have every opportunity right here.”
In addition, WSU can receive resources from Kentucky’s workforce service providers. Those include no-cost recruitment and job placement services, reduced-cost customized training and job-training incentives.
“It is a tremendous honor to welcome an experienced company like Water Solutions Unlimited to our community,” added Grayson County Industrial Foundation President William Thomason. “The Grayson County Industrial Foundation would like to take this opportunity to welcome WSU and we are confident that they will be a proven asset to Leitchfield and Grayson County.”
Water Solutions Unlimited offers a wide variety of treatment options for a broad range of treatment methods for Municipal Water/Wastewater Treatment, ?Industrial Water Treatment, and Agricultural services.
