Japanese company to build $2B battery plant in Kentucky


Kentucky’s governor says a Japanese battery technology company will build a $2 billion factory in his state, creating 2,000 jobs.

The project follows last year’s announcement that Ford and its battery partner will build twin battery plants outside the Glendale community in central Kentucky.

Governor Andy Beshear says the development reinforces the state’s leadership in battery production. Beshear says the Envision AESC plant at Bowling Green will produce battery cells and modules to power the next generation of electric vehicles. Beshear says the project cements the Bluegrass State’s leading role in the automotive industry.
