Manufacturing Month spotlights rapidly growing sector

By Crystal Staley/Jack Mazurak

Frankfort, KY - Kentucky's economy is growing at a record-breaking pace, and the state's manufacturing sector stands at the center of that success. Today, Gov. Andy Beshear issued a proclamation designating October as Manufacturing Month in the commonwealth in recognition of the sector's nearly 5,000 facilities across the state.

"We are setting a new standard for economic growth in Kentucky, and we are doing it with manufacturers from virtually every industry," Gov. Beshear said. "Manufacturing is absolutely vital to our long-term vision for the commonwealth, and that is reflected by the significant number of Kentuckians employed within the sector. We are positioning Kentucky for economic growth well into the future, and manufacturing will continue to be at an integral part of that effort. I want to thank each and every manufacturer across our state for contributing to our tremendous economic success."

Letter: Thank you, Gabe!

Mike Watson writes:
This was a labor of love, of that I feel certain. Gabe presented his proposal, stated the need, and outlined the follow through. Then did just that--followed through. This is a great new sign for Columbia, showing we care for our people, heritage and businesses.

Although the "old" sign, which dated back decades, was an interesting "look into the past" of Columbia, it was failing to show the potential of the community. This sign is a bright, clean, crisp, modern "welcome" to our great town! Thank you, Gabe!
