Company announces expansion in NKY, adding 60 jobs

HEBRON, KY (FOX19) -

Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear announced Thursday that ZF Rubber & Plastics Hebron LLC will expand its Northern Kentucky manufacturing operation, adding more than 60 new jobs to its current full-time workforce of 206.

The company's $17.9 million investment will increase the existing Hebron facility by 52,000 square feet and allow for the purchase of new equipment to manufacture bushings, engine mounts, anti-vibration products and plastics components for the automotive industry.

"We're pleased to see growth here in Northern Kentucky, especially from a company that has been such an important part of this community for nearly two decades," Gov. Beshear said. "The Commonwealth is proud to partner with ZF, and we will continue to support and welcome the creation of new jobs and millions of dollars in investment for Northern Kentucky."

ZF Rubber & Plastics Hebron, which began operations in Hebron in 1994, is one of ZF Friedrichshafen AG's (ZF) 121 global production facilities.

German-owned ZF, a leading automotive supplier for driveline and chassis technology with a presence in 27 countries, has nearly 71,500 employees worldwide and is among the world's top 10 largest automotive suppliers.

"We recently acquired new business that created capacity constraints, which is good news for our company and the community," said Sam Sato, managing director, ZF Rubber & Plastics Hebron LLC. "The business and government collaboration on this project has been outstanding and contributes to our ability to meet the aggressive timeline for the expansion; construction began in late June and is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2012."
