Three Kentucky manufacturers earn 2016 CiCi Awards



For the fourth consecutive year, at least one Kentucky company has received a Corporate Investment & Community Impact (CiCi) Award from Trade & Industry Development magazine. In fact, there are three 2016 awardees from Kentucky: Ford Motor Co. and General Motors Corp. in the Corporate Investment category, and North American Stainless in the Community Impact division.

The CiCi awards are in their 11th year, and recognize 15 companies across the nation in each category.

Ford made the list for its December announcement of a $1.3 billion investment that is expected to create 2,000 new jobs at the Kentucky Truck Plant. The investment will facilitate production of the all-new 2017 F-Series Super Duty truck, which will feature a high-strength aluminum-alloy body.

General Motors was honored for its $439 million investment at its Corvette assembly plant in Bowling Green. The investment will include a new 450,000-square-foot paint shop along with other upgrades throughout the facility. GM also announced in December that it would invest $44 million and add 36 jobs to increase capacity in response to demand for its high-performance Z06 model.

North American Stainless celebrated its 25th anniversary in the Commonwealth last March with its announcement of a $150 million expansion of its stainless steel manufacturing mill in Carroll County. The project will add a bright annealing line, a cold rolling mill and create 36 new full-time jobs.
