Elizabethtown will soon be adding 75 new jobs.  Governor Steve Beshear announced Hendrickson USA LLC will establish a facility in Elizabethtown. Hendrickson, which manufactures suspension systems and components for heavy-duty vehicles, will create 75 jobs as a result of a $20 million investment.

“This is a welcomed investment in central Kentucky,” said Gov. Beshear. “The fact that Hendrickson decided to locate here is further testament to our highly-skilled workforce that is a cornerstone of our thriving auto industry. Hendrickson has been a tremendous corporate partner to the Commonwealth, and I’m excited for this opportunity to put more Kentuckians back to work.”

The Elizabethtown site will manufacture products to supply the company’s existing operations in nearby states. As the facility will be highly-automated, Hendrickson chose Hardin County for its available workforce, training programs and centralized location. The operation will be located in the T.J. Patterson Industrial Park. Construction of the 100,000-square-foot facility is expected to be completed later this year.

Hendrickson is a leading global manufacturer and supplier of medium and heavy-duty suspension systems, axle systems, springs, and bumper and trim components. The company has two existing operations in Somerset and Lebanon, employing 450 Kentuckians.
