CATLETTSBURG – Lt. Gov. Crit Luallen Thursday joined EN Engineering LLC officials to cut the ribbon on the new company facility in Catlettsburg. EN Engineering is creating 80 new jobs and investing $2.8 million into the project.
“This project is a great opportunity for eastern Kentucky, and I want to offer congratulations to EN Engineering and the region on this milestone,” Gov. Steve Beshear said in a statement. “With more than 80 percent of Kentucky’s announced new investment over the past five years coming from existing business, it shows that the Commonwealth is a place where companies want to further their growth. EN Engineering making this investment and adding engineering jobs is the latest example of that commitment.”
“Eighty new jobs coming to eastern Kentucky is tremendous news,” Luallen said. “The Commonwealth’s focus on the industrial energy sector continues to grow, and the expansion of EN Engineering will be a major part of that going forward.”
