Bluegrass Supply Chain Services LLC (BSC) will locate a new operation in Bowling Green with a $25M investment creating 110 full-time jobs as the company expands its logistics capabilities to serve the automotive and food and beverage markets.
“I want to thank the leaders at Bluegrass Supply Chain Services for growing the company’s presence in Bowling Green and continuing to serve key industries in the commonwealth,” Gov. Beshear said. “This investment highlights the continued growth of existing businesses in our state, which play an integral role in building a brighter future for Kentuckians.”
BSC leaders will co-develop and lease a facility in Bowling Green in partnership with Sunnyside Gott REIG, which operates under the same ownership as BSC, for office and warehousing space, the company’s second location in the community. The operation will allow BSC to better serve customers throughout Kentucky and the surrounding region. Company leaders expect work on the project to begin in October 2022 and be completed by January 2024.
“We are excited to develop a new corporate office, warehouse space and a truck facility to support our operations in Bowling Green and Warren County,” said John Higgins, CEO of BSC. “This community has been fantastic for our business. The location provides us easy access to the new connector road to Interstate 65 and close proximity to many of our customers.”
BSC, which will celebrate its 20th anniversary in September, provides value-added warehousing and supply chain services to customers within the automotive, food and beverage and consumer products sectors. The company offers warehousing, reverse logistics, e-commerce fulfillment and transportation management services across a six-state region, with approximately 40% of its customer base located in Kentucky. Its sister company, Bluegrass Dedicated, also is based in Bowling Green and operates a fleet of 100 trucks that provide transportation services to customers throughout the United States.
The project adds to Kentucky’s strength in distribution and logistics. Since the start of the Beshear administration, companies within the sector have announced over 5,700 full-time, Kentucky-resident jobs across more than 90 facility expansion and new-location projects with $608 million in private-sector investment in the commonwealth.
Warren County Judge/Executive Mike Buchanon said the project adds to the region’s growing distribution and logistics presence.
“We appreciate Bluegrass Supply Chain Services’ continued investment in Warren County,” Judge Buchanon said. “Their continued growth and success further emphasize the strength of Warren County as a hub for transportation, distribution and logistics.”
Bowling Green Mayor Todd Alcott is proud to see BSC grow in the community.
“I love hearing stories of companies like Bluegrass Supply Chain Services that were founded and have grown and thrived right here in Bowling Green,” Mayor Alcott said. “These companies make me continuously proud to serve such an amazing community.”
Bowling Green Area Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Ron Bunch
“Bluegrass Supply Chain Services provides a valuable service to many businesses and organizations across the South Central Kentucky region and beyond,” said Bunch. “We commend them for their accomplishments and are thankful for the positive impact this will have on our community. We look forward to many more years of success.”
