TQL is expanding at three locations in Kentucky, nearly doubling its employees in the state and bringing 125 jobs to Boone County, Gov. Andy Beshear announced today.
“Kentucky’s economy continues to grow, and our logistics sector is a major reason for that success,” Beshear said. “These expansions by TQL are incredible news, as the commitments will push the company’s statewide employment to well over 1,000 people. I want to thank TQL’s leadership for their faith in the commonwealth to continue to help their company grow. TQL and Kentucky is clearly a partnership that works, and I look forward to our continued growth together for years to come.”
Employment in Boone, Kenton and Campbell counties increased by 11,000 from 2015 to 2020, according to an industry analysis. The majority of those jobs were created in the transportation and logistics sector.
Expansions at the three locations — in Lexington, Louisville and Boone County — will bring up to 525 new full-time Kentucky resident jobs.
TQL currently employs about 800 people in Kentucky and has been in operation for more than a decade. The Boone County location opened in 2012.
“We have had a presence in the Commonwealth of Kentucky for over a decade,” said TQL President Kerry Byrne. “We appreciate the collaboration of state and local leaders of Lexington, Louisville and Northern Kentucky to help us grow to new heights and are committed to expansion in the state.”
Boone County Judge/Executive Gary Moore congratulated TQL.
“With our ideal location, strong advanced manufacturing base and proximity to the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG), TQL’s addition of new jobs in Boone County makes sense,” Moore said. “We welcome the 125 new supply chain management jobs and TQL’s expansion in Northern Kentucky.”
