President's Message–Rick Games
2017 is off to a good start. Venminder and iPay Solutions/Jack Henry Associates both companies located in Elizabethtown were named to the 13th Annual Best Places to Work in Kentucky List by The Kentucky Chamber of Commerce and the Kentucky Society for Human Resource Management.
Expansion in the Hughes Industrial Park are continuing, the US Bureau of Labor Statistics indicate that 1,300 new jobs were created in 2016 in the Elizabethtown-Fort Knox MSA and Site Selection Magazine listed the Elizabethtown-Fort Knox MSA as tied for ninth place for 2016 corporate facility investment among MSAs with populations of 200,000 or less.
These are just a few accolades for our area and further proof that we are “A Metro with Momentum”.
I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to visit our website at www.eifky.org and view the new video series “Life in Elizabethtown Kentucky”. These quality of life videos were produced to showcase our region and the great amenities available. A large thank you to Heartland Communications for their excellent work in developing these videos. The foundation encourages area employers to leverage the videos in their recruitment efforts. Videos are available at eifky.org and YouTube. Web banners also are available for organizations interested in linking to the videos online.
Remember, EHCIF is here to assist existing industries in addition to promoting the area for new development. Please feel free to contact our office if you feel we may be of assistance.
