Why South Central Kentucky?

Kentucky is in the center of everything.

Kentucky boasts five major Interstate highways, low business costs, an abundance of transportation, logistics support, and a ready workforce.

Kentucky is a land of opportunity. And south central Kentucky is in the middle of it all. We sit halfway between Nashville, TN and Louisville, KY on the busily traveled Interstate 65, linking Alabama to Chicago.

We are already home to companies in automotive manufacturing, printing, healthcare, foods, sleep products and agriculture.

Our area also features plenty of things to do when you aren't working; including Mammoth Cave National Park and Barren River Lake State Park.
