FRANKFORT, Ky. (WXIX) - Gov. Andy Beshear announced Levi Strauss & Co. will establish a new e-commerce distribution center in Erlanger, creating approximately 300 jobs with a $48 million-plus investment.
“Kentucky’s ideal geographic location continues to be a major advantage as our state’s logistics sector shows consistent growth,” Gov. Beshear said in a news relase. “This commitment by Levi Strauss & Co. is the latest evidence that Kentucky is the perfect location for companies looking to get their products to customers as quickly as possible. I want to thank the company’s leadership for its continued support of our workforce and look forward to seeing this new facility operational next year.”

The 300 new full-time positions will have an average hourly compensation of $27.13, including benefits.
Work on the project is expected to begin in February and be completed for operations in early 2023, according to Beshear.
