A state economic development program designed to attract industry has added an industrial site in west Kentucky.
A site in the Interstate 24 Business Park in Cadiz joins 14 others in the state’s ‘Build-Ready’ program.
The 570-acre site includes a building pad for a manufacturing facility and access to water, sewer, natural gas and electric.
Kentucky’s Cabinet for Economic Development Executive Officer Vivek Sarin said smart businesses wanting to cut their project lead time choose Build-Ready sites.
“From the start of our Build-Ready program, communities lined up to welcome the chance to plan, prep, and compete for new businesses and jobs,” Sarin said. “By earning a Build-Ready certification, Cadiz positions itself for success similar to Bowling Green and Springfield’s.”
Canadian cooking equipment manufacturer Crown Verity recently purchased the Bowling Green site last week. An excavation company bought the Build-Ready tract in Springfield.
Other Build-Ready designated sites in west Kentucky include Mayfield, Hopkinsville and Princeton.
