Positive Economic News for Kentucky May 24, 2017 by Staff

Apple announced a $200 million investment in a Harrodsburg glass factory that makes the scratch resistant covers for their smart phones.  This good news comes on the heels of a recent announcement of a $1.3 billion expansion by Toyota of Georgetown and a new $1.3 billion aluminum plant in Eastern Kentucky.
