Noria news wires

Precision Pulley and Idler (PPI) recently announced the addition of a new $10.75 million manufacturing facility in Maysville, Kentucky, with plans to create 134 full-time jobs over the next 10 years.

The new plant will produce products for PPI’s unit-handling segment (i.e., baggage and package handling), and will supplement the company’s existing facilities in Corning, Iowa.

The new 105,000-square-foot facility will be strategically located near many of PPI's current unit-handling customers and is expected to be operational by September 2019.

"The addition of this facility in Maysville allows for additional capacity to meet growing demands both now and into the future," said Roger Brown, PPI president and CEO. "We are very excited to become a part of the Maysville community and expect to be an active member of the community for many years. We are honored to now call Maysville home."

Founded in 1977 and headquartered in Pella, Iowa, PPI is a supplier of idlers, pulleys, bearings and other products to the major bulk and material handling component industries. The company operates 12 facilities in the United States, including manufacturing operations, service centers and training centers, as well as locations in Canada and Chile.
