HEBRON, Ky. (AP) – A Kentucky manufacturer is expanding a plant in Boone County and adding 30 jobs.

Armor USA, which creates specialty printing materials, plans to add 36 jobs with a $3.3 million expansion project.

The expansion will add 32,000 square feet of office and storage space, increasing the facility’s size to 113,000 square feet. Company leaders tell state officials they expect to increase production by more than 60 percent between 2020 and 2030.

A release from Gov. Matt Bevin’s office announced the expansion. Bevin says “manufacturing excellence continues to be a hallmark of Kentucky’s economy.”

Armor manufactures thermal-transfer ribbons used for printing variable information onto labels and packaging. The company is a subsidiary of France-based ARMOR.
