Elizabethtown and Hardin County are home to many manufacturers that are innovative leaders in their industries as well as vital contributors to our region’s economy. EHCIF’s Manufacturer of the Month is an opportunity to recognize these companies and increase awareness of the manufacturing activity happening every day right here in the Elizabethtown area.
E-town Truss, a family owned and operated business, has played a role in building up Elizabethtown, Hardin County and many other Kentucky communities since it was established in 1977.
At its facility on Valley Creek Road, this local company builds custom roof trusses and floor trusses, which are shipped to job sites typically within a 75-mile radius of Elizabethtown. The company, equipped to build trusses with up to an 80-foot clear span, produces products for single-family homes, multi-family dwellings and commercial properties. Working with a long list of area builders and contractors, E-town Truss has left its mark on countless homes and buildings.
This year, the company marked a milestone anniversary. Twenty years ago, Bobby and Kim Tabb purchased the business from Mrs. Tabb’s father. As Mr. Tabb will tell you, the E-town Truss team shares a commitment to Elizabethtown and takes pride in seeing the city’s continued growth and prosperity. They are also grateful to give back to the community. For instance, E-town Truss has been a valuable partner to Habitat for Humanity of Hardin County.
