EZ-ACCESS to Expand in Morganfield

ez access 300FRANKFORT, Ky. (12/5/13) - Gov. Steve Beshear today announced EZ-ACCESS, a manufacturer of portable and modular ramp systems, will expand its operations in Union County. The company is adding manufacturing production lines with the expectation of creating 15 new jobs and investing an estimated $330,000 in the Commonwealth.

"Growing companies are successful companies, and we are delighted that EZ-ACCESS is growing in Union County," said Gov. Beshear. "Their success is further proof that manufacturers enjoy excellent results in Kentucky. The Commonwealth's partnership with EZ-ACCESS demonstrates the quality of our workforce, as well as the advantages which come with such an ideal location to do business."

EZ-ACCESS provides premier home access and commercial access solutions through a variety of portable mobility ramps, commercial mobility ramps and mobility accessories. The company established its Morganfield facility in 2007 as a result of increased national sales. The new lines will produce assembly parts and subcomponents for mobility access ramps and other mobility access solutions.

"We are excited for the growth of EZ-ACCESS here in Kentucky," said J.D. Kramer, plant manager of EZ-ACCESS. "It has been the dedication and quality brought forth by our valued employees in this community that has set the foundation and built the confidence of our executive team to expand our Kentucky operations."

To encourage the investment and job growth in Union County, the Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority preliminarily approved the company for tax incentives up to $150,000 through the Kentucky Business Investment program. The performance-based incentive allows a company to keep a portion of its investment over the term of the agreement through corporate income tax credits and wage assessments by meeting job and investment targets.

"The expansion and further investment in our community by EZ-ACCESS will provide a boost to our local economy and create new opportunities for our workforce," said Sen. Dorsey Ridley, of Henderson. "EZ-ACCESS is a good corporate neighbor and we are pleased that the company is growing. I applaud Gov. Beshear for taking the lead to support this industry, their employees and their families."

"Since bringing their operation to Morganfield, EZ-ACCESS has been able to provide a significant number of skilled-labor jobs to residents of Union County," said Morganfield Mayor Bill Young. "They are a great corporate citizen in our community, and I am proud to hear that they have decided to expand their operation. It's a good sign for us, and a good sign for them. It's also an indicator that they plan on being in Union County for many more years to come."

"EZ-ACCESS is an integral part of Union County's business community," said Union County Judge-Executive Jody Jenkins. "The stewardship of EZ-ACCESS has enabled Union County and their families to continue to prosper, and their dedication to expanding confirms their commitment to Union County and the entire region."
