Two businesses located in a regional business park in Morehead are expanding operations. Family Dollar and Hamilton Company announced this week that their expansions will mean 125 new jobs.
The expansions come as a coal severance grant of $170,165 has enabled the park to repair its main access road and build another, according to a state news release.
The Family Dollar Distribution Center plans to invest $1.5 million to expand and add 100 employees. Hamilton Company, meanwhile, plans to invest $1 million to expand its distribution facility for Heiner's Bakery and Sara Lee products and create 25 new jobs.
