Governor: Plastic pipe company to create 125 new jobs in Paducah

Gov. Steve Beshear today joined company officials and local leaders to announce Genova Products Inc. is establishing operations in Paducah.

Genova, which manufactures PVC pipe and fittings, is expected to create 125 new jobs and invest $4.9 million into the project.

“This is an outstanding boost to the economy in Paducah and the Commonwealth,” said Gov. Beshear. “Genova is a highly successful global firm, and we couldn’t be more excited about the 125 professional jobs it will create in western Kentucky. The choice to locate here says a lot about our business-friendly climate, ideal location and valuable workforce. We look forward to a continued and successful partnership with Genova and are pleased to welcome them to Kentucky.”

Genova makes plumbing and building materials, mostly from vinyl. The company is leasing a 100,000-square-foot factory that once housed Infiniti Plastic Technologies Inc. The company began operations at the facility last month and currently employs 15 people. Genova chose Paducah due to available land, low electricity costs and rail access.

“We are very excited about the opportunities that lie ahead for us in a partnership with the city of Paducah,” said Mike DeBoer, president of Genova Products. “This location and state-of-the-art facility provide us with a strategic opportunity to expand our production and distribution capacity to support the future growth initiatives underway at Genova. We have found the people of Paducah a delight to work with and are certain both parties will mutually benefit from this alliance.”

Genova has been making vinyl pipe and fittings for professional and do-it-yourself plumbers since 1962. The company expanded into vinyl gutters and fencing and now has a product line that includes vinyl downspouts, decks and rails; drinking water and sanitary systems for boats and RVs. Its products are sold at Ace, Blish-Mize, True Value and Do It Best hardware stores.

Genova was the first company to bring plastics into the plumbing industry in North America. The company currently has a total of five factories in Michigan, Minnesota, Indiana, Nevada and Texas and two warehouses in Indiana and Texas. Genova also has a location in Lithuania.

“I am pleased that with hard work, focus and diligence, we have found an ideal fit to create jobs in our building formerly occupied by Infiniti,” said McCracken County Judge-Executive Van Newberry. “The building was constructed to create at least 100 jobs in the plastics industry and that’s exactly what Genova is proposing to do. Genova was founded more than 50 years ago and we hope to create a partnership that will last for Genova’s next 50 years.”

Round 3: Center truss of old Ledbetter Bridge slated to come down Wednesday

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to restrict westbound traffic to one lane on the new U.S. 60 Tennessee River Bridge at Ledbetter starting at 6 a.m. Wednesday.

This lane restriction for westbound traffic only is to allow KyTC personnel, area news media and the public to observe Round 3 of controlled explosive demolition on the old Ledbetter Bridge scheduled for 8 a.m. Wednesday. The contractor will be taking down the center truss that crosses the main navigation channel of the Tennessee River.

All westbound traffic along U.S. 60 on the approaches and deck of the new bridge will be moved to the left-hand or passing lane in this work zone. To maintain traffic flow for commuters there will be no stopping allowed on the bridge in this work zone and no unauthorized parking on the bridge.

Motorists who regularly travel across the new U.S. 60 Tennessee River Bridge at Ledbetter between 6 a.m. and about 9 a.m., should consider allowing extra travel time for the Wednesday morning commute as traffic congestion is likely.

Motorists should use extra caution due to personnel on the bridge in close proximity to traffic flow. There will be an enhanced enforcement presence in this work zone.

Bus incident leaves only mirrors broken

An incident with a Crittenden County school bus this afternoon left a couple of mirrors broken, but no one hurt.

Crittenden County Superintendent of Schools Vince Clark said a bus taking students home from school clipped a grain truck on Ky. 855. Clark said the side view mirrors were the only parts of the two vehicles that made contact. The mirrors were broken, but no one was hurt, Clark said.

However, during any sort of collision involving a bus, the superintendent said protocol is to send another bus out to finish transporting the students. Wayne Winters, lead bus mechanic, went to the scene and assured Clark there were no injuries.

"We always send out another bus in such a case," Clark said.

There were only six stops left on the route.

"We've taken all precautions," Clark said, "and called all the parents."
