Why Kentucky

It’s the birthplace of Abraham Lincoln and world famous bourbon and known as the horse capital of the world. It’s a place where the sun shines bright and the people have an unbridled spirit. The Commonwealth of Kentucky, with its diverse landscape can claim many superlatives.

It’s no wonder why many of the world’s most successful companies have discovered that Kentucky, land of the thoroughbred, is a great place to build their business. Just look at our track record: industrial electricity costs that are consistently among the lowest in the nation, a tax structure that’s among the most competitive in the region, and an ideal location within 600 miles of two-thirds of America’s population.

We also have some of the most progressive financial incentive programs anywhere, a workforce with a "can-do" attitude, and an unsurpassed quality of life. Called the new "Auto Alley" for its strong vehicle manufacturing presence, the Commonwealth now also offers a burgeoning service sector and a rash of high-tech opportunities.
