New Limestone Processing Plant Comes to Lyon County

Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear joined other state, local and business officials in Eddyville yesterday to announce H-and-G Limestone Products’ plans to begin operations in Lyon County. The company will invest almost one and a half million dollars to build a 22-thousand-500-square-foot processing plant employing 10 full-time workers. H&G Limestone produces material for roofing shingles and makes a calcium supplement used in animal food.  State officials say demand for the food supplement is the reason for the new Lyon County facility.  The Commonwealth has approved 300-thousand dollars in tax incentives for the company.  State Senator Ken Winters joined the governor in welcoming H&G to the area and says he looks forward to a long and productive relationship with the company.
