R.J. Corman Railroad Group of Nicholasville said Friday that it is entering the business of signal system design, wiring, construction, maintenance, packing and material warehousing logistics.

The work will be done through its new company, R.J. Corman Signaling LLC, a company news release said.

Work on the company's Nicholasville office is nearly complete, and the location for a second office has been identified in Jacksonville/Orange Park, Fla., "to help us accelerate our early-stage growth in engineering and construction," said Mike Wilson, vice president of the new company.

Wilson said plans call for hiring more than 100 new employees to support engineering and the signal shop, although eventually the number will be much higher.

R. J. Corman Railroad Group is a multi-service provider to the railroad industry, with more than 40 properties throughout the United States, including eleven short-line railroads.
