Industrial Maintenance Company Moving to Paducah
By West Kentucky Star Staff
PADUCAH - A new business will be moving into the I-24 Industrial Park in Paducah, and is expected to bring about 30 jobs to McCracken County.

A Monday press release from Paducah Economic Development says Deer Property Holdings, LLC purchased a site that will be leased to Global Group Industrial Services, an industrial maintenance services company.

“We are excited to welcome Global Group Industrial Services to Paducah. We gained both a new business and a capital investment in our community,” says Glen Anderson, Interim President & CEO of Paducah Economic Development.

The building site consists of 10 acres and a 60,000-square-foot building shell on Commerce Drive. Surrounding tenants include Coca-Cola Distribution, Genova Products, UACJ Automotive/Whitehall Industries and H.T. Hackney Distribution. Global Group Industrial Services does machine work, metal fabrication, gearbox work and will possibly expand into light industrial work.

The building was sold by the Industrial Development Authority, with the help of Kathleen Gillespie of Falconite Development Group and Paducah Economic Development.

Bob Johnston, Chairman of the Development Authority, said, "I am very pleased for the completion of the sale of the park’s spec building to Global Group Industrial Services. The Authority has held the building for some time and several times have come close to having industries locate there. However, each time changes in circumstances within the companies involved caused a failure to consummate the deal. Not only is Global Group a progressive company that promises to grow the 30 start-up jobs, but the addition of a new development in the park causes excitement and creates interest that hopefully will bring the many advantages of its location to the attention of other prospects."

The City and County share the payroll taxes 50%/50% from the location of the companies in the 1-24 Park, benefiting both governments.

Anderson told West Kentucky Star the company's owners, Jim and Debbie Sourick and Steve and Erika Hibner, live in McCracken County and are moving the business from Massac County to Paducah.
