Hines Group expanding, will add 50 jobs


PHILPOT, Ky. (AP) — A precision metal forming company in western Kentucky is expanding and plans to add about 50 jobs.

The Messenger-Inquirer ( reports the Hines Group plans the expansion at its location in Philpot at the MidAmerican Airpark.

Meanwhile, Daviess County officials are considering $200,000 in incentives to help with the expansion.

Wayne Foster, chairman of the Daviess County Economic Development Advisory Board, says the company will be offering high-paying, good jobs to workers. The group recommended giving the company the incentive, but the final decision lies with the Fiscal Court.

The money would come out of a $1 million pot county officials set up two years ago to help it attract more jobs to the areas.
