Denyo Manufacturing Corp. in Danville will add up to 90 jobs with an expansion announced Thursday.
The company, which currently employs 145 people, said it will invest $8.7 million for construction of an additional building and the purchase of new equipment.
A new 63,000-square-foot building will be constructed on the current Denyo campus for fabrication of sheet metal components used in generator and air compressor assembly.
The new facility will include equipment for cutting, bending, and welding of steel for structural components on-site.
The Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority gave preliminary approval Thursday for state financial incentives in the amount of $700,000 for a portion of the expansion. Denyo intends to also seek local financial incentives.
Denyo, which has been in Danville since 1995, said its expansion is planned to be fully operational by October 2018.
The Danville plant assembles engine-driven generators that are widely used in rental, construction and telecommunications applications as well as by the U.S. military.
