On Thursday, July 6, Governor Matt Bevin announced Wright-Mix Material Solutions LLC will invest $8.5 million in a production facility at the river port in Wurtland, creating 130 full-time jobs. Governor Bevin said by expanding into a new location in Greenup County, Wright-Mix will grow its parent company’s home-state economic impact and employment while reaching new customers across Kentucky’s borders. Wright-Mix will renovate an existing building at the Greenup/Boyd Riverport at Wurtland, increasing its size to 80,000 square feet and preparing it for fully automated toll blending and bagging operations. The company will also build storage facilities to house raw materials and finished products. Work is scheduled to begin in August and the facility could start operations by January.
