Precision, Inc. was congratulated by Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin and other state leaders on the new Precision Pulley & Idler (PPI) facility in Maysville, Ky.
The occasion was celebrated with a Nov. 12 ribbon cutting at the site. The 105,000 square foot facility will provide additional manufacturing and distribution space to meet increasing PPI customer demand in the region. It will also assist the company in seamlessly serving customers in the event of natural disaster or production disruptions in other locations.
“We are very excited to open our new PPI facility in Maysville, Kentucky,” said Roger Brown, president and CEO. “We look forward to a bright future and anticipate many years of growth in the community.”
The ribbon cutting followed PPI’s move into the existing facility, placing the company in the same region as several of its key customers. The building addresses the growth in PPI’s package and baggage handling product lines in particular.
“We are excited to welcome PPI to Kentucky and wish them many years of success here in the commonwealth,” said Bevin. “We are grateful for PPI’s creation of 100-plus new jobs, and we congratulate Mason County on this outstanding addition to their community.”
Owen McNeill, executive director of the Maysville-Mason County Industrial Development Authority (MMCIDA), congratulated Precision’s employee owners on the new relationship within the region.
“Today’s PPI ribbon-cutting ceremony marks another milestone in the company’s tremendous expansion as an industry leader in major bulk and material handling component markets,” said NcNeill. “The MMCIDA welcomes PPI to our area.”
