Elevate Windows and Doors Adding New Facility in Kentucky

Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear announced a significant investment in Kentucky’s manufacturing sector, as Elevate Windows and Doors LLC will invest over $16 million and create 203 full-time jobs with a new production and distribution operation in Hopkinsville.

“I want to welcome Elevate to Christian County and the commonwealth, and the more than 200 quality jobs the company will create with this investment,” says Beshear. “This is the latest company to recognize the value in locating in Kentucky and the many strengths we offer to ensure their business thrives well into the future. Elevate will be a great addition to our manufacturing sector, which continues to diversify and grow.”

The expansion

Company leaders will acquire an existing 100,000-square-foot building on 22 acres in Hopkinsville in the next step of their plans to expand Elevate’s manufacturing and distribution footprint throughout the southern United States.

Company leaders noted the strategic distribution location, available workforce and business-friendly environment as factors in the decision to locate in Christian County. New jobs created through the project will include 183 light manufacturing and shipping roles and 20 office positions. Company leaders expect to begin production as soon as April 2023.

“In advance of our eastern expansion, we would like to thank the Commonwealth of Kentucky, Christian County, City of Hopkinsville and TVA for all their hard work and support,” says Mike Prindle, chief financial officer at Elevate. “We would also like to thank the South Western Kentucky Economic Development Council for coordinating all entities to make this new expansion become a reality. The facility where our new plant will be located, potential employee base and welcoming community support made our decision an easy one. We are excited to soon be a part of this thriving community.”
