LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A company is brewing up a plan to grow and create new jobs in Jefferson County.
Bigelow Tea Company, which produces specialty tea, is currently located in an 85,000-square-foot facility on Constant Comment Place in Jeffersontown. But it is expanding so it can boost production to meet growing customer demand.
“I recently discovered that after an exhaustive search, this expansion could have gone anywhere in the country,” Jeffersontown Mayor Bill Dieruf said in a press release. “In talking with Cindi Bigelow, it became obvious that Bigelow Tea’s commitment to its employees and family friendly values dovetailed well with Jeffersontown’s belief of family first. Jeffersontown will continue to strengthen its already 20-plus-year partnership with this stellar corporate citizen.”
The company plans to invest $53 million to build a new 334,000-square-foot operation on Blankenbaker Road that will give it nearly four times the space it has now. The move is expected to create 31 new jobs.
