Riken Elastomers Corporation formed a partnership with South Western KY Economic Development Council (Hopksinville-Chrisitan County Economic Development Council) in 2006 when making the siteselection for our new plant. Since that time, the EDC has supported us through our first expansion in 2013-2014, and they continue to support us as we begin our second expansion. The strong support from the EDC remains a key factor in our ability to continue to grow our business here in Hopkinsville.
Kentucky Machine and Engineering has been a part of Cadiz-Trigg County for the past 33 years. We have grown from 5 employees to over 70, during that time. The strong work ethic of this community along with the cost of living has allowed Kentucky Machine to maintain steady growth. Cadiz-Trigg County has succeeded in maintaining a strong industrial environment and has been a great partner for Kentucky Machine.
We have been in Trigg County since 1991. It was no question when we decided to build here in Trigg County that it was a great place to raise your family and could work without having to drive out of town for a good job. The people and their work ethics in our community make Trigg County proud. Our location is 0.7 miles from the interstate I-24 and with this accessibility it makes it easy when shipping parts by trucking lines. We truly live and work in a great community!
Business growth is a fundamental ingredient to developing a bright future for our community. We at Transcraft Corporation are extremely proud to be part of the success story here in Cadiz and the Trigg County area. We would not be where we are without the vital support of the entire Cadiz – Trigg County Economic Development team. The EDC has been our partner since the early days of our decision to consolidate here, has done nothing but go out of their way to make sure our business thrives and their cooperative approach, responsiveness and willingness to invest have been key ingredients to our growing success. Thanks, EDC team, your efforts make our city and this county a great place for business.
