GE-Hitachi may be one of other possible companies vying to operate the Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant if current operations at the plant cease.

A customer call service that would bring 400 jobs to Paducah has shown interest in the city’s Commerce Center. But Paducah Economic Development President Chad Chancellor says the decision to move relies on survey results.
