Blue Grass Metals Inc will expand its operation in Boone County with the creation of 15 jobs via a more than USD 4 million investments. Dale Badger, president of Blue Grass Metals, said “Ever since becoming an employee-owned company back in 2013, we have been investigating ways to improve our competitive advantage and increase market share. We believe that expansion here in Northern Kentucky will provide strategic opportunities to expand not only our customer base but our product offering as well.”

Blue Grass Metals has been in operation for over 25 years, initially serving the pneumatic tool industry and supplying the automotive industry since 1998. The construction of an adjacent 50,000-square-foot facility in Boone County and the purchase of new equipment will add manufacturing capability to produce wire forms for seat frames, exhaust brackets, frame components, stamping and tube fabrication.

Blue Grass Metals, based near Independence, got its start in 1990 with a 2,000-square-foot facility that employed five people and provided precision wire forms to customers in the pneumatic tool industry serving the housing market. The company has since grown and currently operates in an 80,000-square-foot facility with a broad customer base ranging from small shops to Fortune 500 companies. The company currently employs 62 people in Northern Kentucky.
