Carhartt will invest millions in Hopkins County facility

HANSON, KY (WFIE) -

Carhartt Industries is making a multi-million dollar investment in its facility in Hanson.

The Madisonville-Hopkins County Economic Development Corporation says the company will upgrade equipment inside the plant.

President Gerald Cook says it says a lot about the future of the region that a company as large as Carhartt is making a long-term investment in the county.

"It really solidifies the fact that Hopkins County, Kentucky is in a good place. We're in a good point for distribution, we're in a good point for manufacturing," says Cook.

Carhartt won't say right now how much money they'll be putting into the facility.

The upgrades are expected to begin immediately.
