A building materials supplier is investing $10 million dollars to build a new manufacturing facility in Bowling Green.

Governor Matt Bevin said Thursday that Carter Lumber Company will create 50 jobs for the region and operate under its Kight Home Center division. The operation will produce roof and floor trusses, wall panels and other wood products.

Construction of the 70,000 square-foot facility is anticipated to begin later this year and would open in late 2018 or early 2019.

Bowling Green Mayor Bruce Wilkerson said Carter Lumber is welcome to the city’s business community that he says is expected to grow over the next several years.
