600 new jobs coming to Boone County

iHerb, an online provider of natural products and food supplements, has announced it will establish a regional e-commerce headquarters in Northern Kentucky. The company is based in California and plans to build a new state-of-the-art e-commerce center at IDI's Park West industrial park in Hebron.

"The iHerb organization looks forward to forming a solid relationship with the Northern Kentucky community," said Cliff Cowing, iHerb's director of strategic planning and analytics. "We know the Northern Kentucky workforce is strong and the geography favorable-two primary factors for choosing our location at Park West."

Kentucky is offering more than $3 million in tax incentives.

Boone County is emerging as an e-c0mmerce hub. In just the last few months NorAm announced it was moving its headquarters there. DHL is wraping up its most recent hub expansion. Amazon has announced plans to hire 900 full-time employees and up to 5,000 seasonal workers in Hebron.
