Horizon Steel to locate facility in Kentucky

December 3, 2013

Steel service center Horizon Steel Co. has announced its intent to expand its operations and locate a 90,000-sq.-ft. facility in Bowling Green, Ky. The project will bring a capital investment of $15 million and 30 new full-time positions to the region.

The expansion comes on the heels of an agreement for Horizon to be the exclusive processing partner to Germany-based Bilstein Group, which produces cold-rolled strip steel products and recently announced a $120 million project for the south central Kentucky region.

The facility will be a part of a co-located operation anticipated to span approximately 150,000 sq. ft. in the Kentucky Transpark and also will serve as a production plant and U.S. headquarters for the Bilstein Group.
