Holley Adding Distribution Operations In Western KY

Holley Performance Products Inc. will establish a $9.15 million facility in Franklin, Kentucky, creating 30 full-time jobs, Gov. Matt Bevin announced this week.

"We are excited to see the economic impact of Holley Performance Products' newest operation," Bevin said in a statement. "Holley is a storied name in the American tradition of hotrods, drag racing, muscle cars and stock-car racing, and will be a great addition to Kentucky's burgeoning automotive industry. Our administration, along with the Franklin community, are thrilled to welcome the additional jobs and investment Holley is bringing to the Commonwealth."


Holley will locate a distribution operation in a leased, 200,000-square-foot building in Franklin, expected to open in early 2018. The operation will be about 20 miles from Holley's corporate headquarters in Bowling Green, according to a news release.


The new facility brings the company's total Kentucky employment to approximately 330. Holley in 1952 located its carburetor manufacturing plant in Bowling Green, and moved to its corporate headquarters in 1993.


"We've been introducing innovative new product solutions that have driven growth in our business to the point that we are out of space in our current Bowling Green facility. This new location in Franklin will allow us to free up much-needed floor space for more manufacturing production activities," said Terry Rutledge, Holley's senior vice president of operations.
