"IN THE MIDDLE OF EVERYTHING"
Within a day’s drive of two-thirds of the U.S. population, Kentucky is located at the center of a 34-state distribution area in the eastern United States. While we appreciate our close proximity to these major cities, the heart of our community lies with our citizens. And many of these quality, skilled laborers are currently traveling an average of 32 minutes to work every day in various neighboring cities.
