US Medical Glove Co. is investing $32.5 million toward expanding its current facility in Paris, Kentucky. This will go toward creating 45 new computer technician jobs from the start, and up to 192 jobs total. But that’s not all. Since this company is owned by a retired Major General, the plan is to provide well-paying jobs to veterans. This will help Bourbon County’s economy in many ways.
From Area Development Magazine:
“This plant is part of returning critical product manufacturing to the United States. […] Our hiring of veterans is a big part of that. They bring the values and skills they learned in their military service. We describe Liberty Gloves as made for America by Americans.” […]
“As we continue to fight COVID-19, we are working to rebuild our economy and create a better Kentucky. […] Personal protective equipment is in high demand throughout the world, and this new company can help meet that need. Also, as a veteran-run company, leaders in the U.S. Medical Glove want to create quality, well-paying jobs for other veterans.” […]
“It is with great excitement and anticipation as we welcome the U.S. Medical Glove Co. to Paris/Bourbon County. […] This will create additional job opportunities for our current residents and furthermore give our youth another reason to stay in Paris and raise their families. I want to thank the local economic development board as well as the Kentucky Cabinet for Economic Development for their hard work and diligence in making this a reality.”AREA DEVELOPMENT MAGAZINE
