SITEX Corp. bringing 30 new jobs to Henderson with $4.5M expansion
HENDERSON, Ky. (WFIE) - SITEX Corp. is expanding in Henderson that will create 30 full-time jobs.
SITEX Corp. is a uniform and linen rental business based in Henderson.
State officials say the $4.5 million investment will allow for an additional 2,500 square feet of space, purchase of new equipment, expansion of the loading dock and automation of several processes.
Henderson Mayor Steve Austin says SITEX has operated in Henderson for a long time.
“The third-generation folks that are running that now are good community people and we are just so happy for them in this expansion and the new employee situation,” Austin said.
Whitney Risley with Henderson Economic Development says the project is expected to get underway immediately and finished by 2026.
“Any time there’s new jobs in our area, it just creates more opportunity. The more everybody is raising up and creating new jobs, hopefully others will trickle down as well,” Risley said.
Mayor Austin says this expansion speaks to the opportunities Henderson provides to businesses.
“It just continues to let people know that Henderson is a good place to have a business, a good place to start a business and that we are pretty business-friendly,” Austin said.
Risley said SITEX will post those job openings on the economic development job board.
The company’s additional facilities operate in Louisville, Paducah, Nashville, Tennessee, and Jasper, Indiana.
