Gov. Matt Bevin announced May 10 that Dajcor Aluminum Ltd a Canadian manufacturer of extruded and fabricated aluminum products, plans to create up to 265 full-time jobs as it invests nearly USD 19.6 million to locate its first US operation near Hazard. Mr Bevin said in a statement that “We are excited for another major jobs announcement in Eastern Kentucky, where we have a strong, skilled workforce ready to serve any industry’s needs,. Dajcor Aluminum has selected an excellent location for its first US operation and will be a great fit for the workforce in and around Perry County. We are grateful to Dajcor for their decision to locate in Kentucky, and we stand ready to help this company achieve its goals and continue its rapid growth.”

Perry County Judge-Executive Scott Alexander said that he believes the people of Kentucky are what drew Dajcor to open their first US operation in Perry County.

Mr Alexander said that “I think the skilled labor market that we have is what’s so attractive, one of the best assets we have is our people and the skilled workforce that we have here. We’ve done a lot of pre-tests and surveys for the qualifications and the skill market in aluminum parts manufacturing, machinists and those types of jobs, we have an amazing workforce here that’s ready to go to work in those areas.”

Dajcor plans to locate in the former American Woodmark facility in Perry County’s Coalfields Industrial Park. The operation will provide Dajcor additional capacity for aluminum extrusion and fabrication to serve a variety of North American industries. The Kentucky location will also help the company better reach its US customers. Retrofitting and setup will begin immediately and operations are slated to begin by the end of 2019.
