Gov. Beshear Highlights October as Manufacturing Month in Kentucky
3 Oct 2023
Gov. Andy Beshear has designated October as Manufacturing Month in the commonwealth as the sector continues to be at the center of Kentucky’s record economic growth and job creation with approximately 5,000 facilities statewide employing more than 250,000 Kentuckians.
“We could not have the tremendous economic success we’ve had these past three years if not for our expansive manufacturing network,” Gov. Beshear said. “From our diverse food and beverage industry to primary metals to the automotive and electric vehicle market that is reaching new heights every year, manufacturing is at the center of our recent success and that will continue to be true for decades to come. Thank you to every manufacturer creating great jobs for Kentuckians and distributing Kentucky-made products around the globe.”
