Holley Performance Products Incorporated an automotive racing and performance parts manufacturer, will establish a $9.15 million facility in Franklin, creating 30 full-time jobs. Governor Matt Bevin, who made the announcement on Thursday, September 28, said they are excited to see the economic impact of Holley Performance Product’s newest operation, and that they will be a great addition to Kentucky’s burgeoning automotive industry. Holley will locate a distribution operation in a leased, 200,000-square-foot building in Franklin, which is expected to open in early 2018. The new facility will be about 20 miles from Holley’s corporate headquarters in Bowling Green. Kentucky’s automotive industry includes more than 500 facilities employing 100,000-plus people across the state. This year through August, the industry announced more than $3.9 billion in new facility expansions and investments, which are expected to create over 3,000 full time jobs.
