Henderson-bound aluminum company receives nearly $1 million

Tuesday, Feb 28, 2017

A South African aluminum company that plans to open a plant in Henderson has been awarded nearly $1 million in economic development assistance from the state of Kentucky.

The Kentucky Department for Local Government approved funding for a $970,000 Community Development Block Grant for the purchase and lease of equipment to Hansens Aluminum for the development of a 75,000-square-foot facility within the Henderson Riverport industrial area.

Hansens’ investment will total $18.3 million for the acquisition of 10.3 acres of land, construction of the building and procurement of equipment. Hansens Aluminum has projected this expansion will create 50 jobs in Henderson County.

“The Henderson community welcomes this new international industry, the much-needed new jobs that will follow, and the boost to our economic climate,” said Sen. Dorsey Ridley. “We stand ready with a dedicated and skilled workforce to meet the company’s needs. I look forward to a long and prosperous partnership between the Henderson community and Hansens Aluminum.”

“I am very pleased to have a dynamic, innovative manufacturer like Hansens Aluminum in Henderson,” said Rep Robby Mills. “The Henderson community is deeply grateful that this South African company chose Henderson as their U.S. home.  Our skilled and readied workforce is more than capable of making this investment venture a success in Kentucky for years to come.”

The CDBG program provides assistance to communities for use in revitalizing neighborhoods, expanding affordable housing and economic opportunities, providing infrastructure or improving community facilities and services.
