Oct 25, 2013

Automotive supplier Mubea  cut the ribbon on its new manufacturing facility in Boone County today.  The  $60 million investment will lead to the creation of about 150 jobs. 

Governor Steve Beshear and Northern Kentucky officials joined the company and its employees for the ceremony.

“Mubea has been producing highly technical parts for the automotive sector for more than 30 years, providing hundreds of jobs and capital investment in northern Kentucky,” said  Beshear. “We’re thrilled that Mubea chose to build this new manufacturing facility in Boone County and gladly welcome the addition of approximately 150 jobs.”

The  75,000-square-foot facility is in the Northern Kentucky Industrial Park, which is also home to Mazak, Sweco and many other international advanced manufacturers.

Mubea's North America operations occupy 800,000 square feet in eight locations, with one in Elsmere and the others in unincorporated Boone Coounty.  The company's workforce is expected to top 1,000 by the end of the year.
