A manufacturing firm based in Glasgow, Kentucky will create 25 new jobs through a plan to expand its operations. Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear announced the $3.8 million SpanTech expansion project, which will include purchasing new equipment and leasing an additional 55,500 square feet.

The company, which was founded in 1978, manufactures custom conveyer systems for the global marketplace.  The firm currently employs 66 people at its facility in Barren County. SpanTech specializes in conveyors for the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries.

The Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority has given SpanTech preliminary approval for tax incentives up to $500,000, through the Kentucky Business Investment program.
