Woodford County has landed three significant new plants in the last 18 months. If the companies do all they’ve promised to get state incentives, they’ll bring 626 jobs and $117 million in new investment to a county better known for thoroughbreds than factories. Some of the credit for that success is due to an unassuming former banker named John Soper, an independent contractor who works full-time to attract jobs to Versailles, Midway and Woodford County.
