A fiberglass manufacturer is investing $5 million and creating 20 full-time jobs at a recently-acquired Henderson facility.
SKAPS Industries plans to upgrade the facility that was formerly Matrix Composites and purchase additional manufacturing equipment.
SKAPS leaders said the company purchased Matrix Composites Inc. and its knitting and weaving facilities in Henderson County, Ky. and Seguin, Texas to expand their fiberglass division in North and South America.
The company PBR operates under the SKAPS name and fabricates geosynthetic and nonwoven drainage products. Fiberglass fabric is used in landfills, agriculture and canals.
