Taylor County lands new auto-related project

FRANKFORT — A South Korean-owned company has picked Taylor County for a distribution and sales center expected to employ about 75 people within two years in the central Kentucky county.

The company, INFAC Corp., expects to begin manufacturing emergency brake cables at the Campbellsville Industrial Park sometime during the fourth quarter of 2008.

Gov. Steve Beshear's office announced the project Tuesday.

The company is a producer and worldwide supplier of mechanical cables and electronics components for the auto industry. The company's director of North American operations, Jay Choi, says the central location and workforce were among the factors in Taylor County being chosen.
