Our services extend to all industries that call Kentucky Crossroads home.


Whether small, mid-size or large, existing industries are the foundation of any thriving community. They breathe economic life into the citizens they employ, help shape a community’s quality of life through community engagement and serve as a beacon for attracting future employers. The Kentucky Crossroads region is fortunate to have a diverse base of industry, many of which have located here to take advantage of the business assets offered to new and growing companies, including a workforce that is second to none.

The past five years has produced tremendous growth for our new and existing industries with more than $1.5 billion in investment and nearly 4,000 new jobs announced, and more on the way. Here’s a snapshot of some of the region’s difference makers.
