FRANKFORT, Ky. (Aug. 26, 2021) – Today, Gov. Andy Beshear announced Chapin International Inc., a manufacturer of compressed air sprayers, plans to add 200 full-time jobs with an expansion of its recently opened Rockcastle County facility and a new location in Boyle County, two projects totaling nearly $16.7 million in new investment.
“Time is money for businesses growing in Kentucky, and Chapin International is setting a record pace for growth in the commonwealth,” Gov. Beshear said. “Last fall, I was proud of the effort at the state and local level to help Chapin establish its new home in Mount Vernon, and I am even more thrilled to see the company already announce new growth in the commonwealth. Chapin shares our vision to create quality jobs for Kentuckians for years to come, and I thank its leadership for believing in our state and our talented workforce for not one, but two significant new investments here.”
Chapin leaders will invest $8.25 million and create 100 jobs in Boyle County with the acquisition of a 496,000-square-foot facility on the South Danville Bypass. The company also will increase investment in its Mount Vernon operation to $13.9 million and double job creation at the facility to 200 full-time positions.
