Work begins on $52 million Jefferson Riverport project

PACCAR Parts, a distributor of aftermarket parts for heavy- and medium-duty trucks, trailers, buses and engines, broke ground on a $52.2 million distribution center in Louisville Riverport Authority’s Phase V development.

This investment is expected to create 80 full-time jobs, according to a news release from Gov. Andy Beshear's office.

“PACCAR Parts is a world-class company, and I am proud its leaders chose the commonwealth to expand its global operations,” Beshear said in the release. “The company will help us to build a better Kentucky by providing competitive wages and benefits for the people of Kentucky and will have a positive impact on our economy and the local community.”

Company leaders Thursday were joined by local officials and representatives from Louisville-based Abel Construction, Luckett & Farley, Kenworth of Louisville, TLG Peterbilt — Louisville and Dynacraft, a division of PACCAR, to break ground on what will be a 260,000-square-foot facility for motor-vehicle-related parts distribution, including original equipment and replacement parts and aftermarket products.
