Gov. Beshear Celebrates Opening of Daher-TLI in Ballard County

beshear a 300KEVIL, Ky. (12/3/13) - Governor Steve Beshear today joined company officials and local leaders in Ballard County to celebrate the grand opening of Transport Logistics International Inc. (Daher-TLI). The operation, in western Kentucky, will create up to 20 new jobs and a $2.2 million investment in the Commonwealth.

"Daher-TLI is a perfect fit for Kentucky and Ballard County, especially with all the logistical advantages the area offers, including the river and a strategic location within the country," said Gov. Beshear. "We are excited about the 20 new jobs and $2.2 million investment the company brings to the Commonwealth."

Daher-TLI is a leading North American transportation management company specializing in radioactive material. The company manages cylinder transports, both domestically and internationally, and provides engineering services and professional support for packaging and transportation of radioactive material and related products. The Ballard County facility offers a new service line for washing and recertifying empty cylinders for continued use or for decontamination and disposal.

"We're excited about our new location and warm reception we've received from Kentucky and the local Ballard county community," said Mark Lambert, managing partner of Daher-TLI. "We've found a skilled, dedicated and experienced work-force and strong infrastructure that can support our new facility and continued growth. We greatly appreciate the overwhelming support from the local community, businesses and contractors, who have all come together to help us succeed."

To encourage the investment and job creation in Ballard County, the Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority preliminarily approved the company for tax incentives up to $350,000 through the Kentucky Business Investment pro-gram. 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.

"When a company invests in a community, it is also investing in that communi-ty's workforce," said Sen. Bob Leeper, of Paducah. "We appreciate Daher-TLI choosing Ballard County as a place to do business."

"More good news for Ballard County," said Ballard County Judge-Executive Vickie Viniard. "Ballard County has many resources and opportunities for com-panies to locate in our great county. I would like to thank Daher-TLI for choosing Ballard County for their company. I would also like to thank the fiscal court, the Ballard County Industrial Board and the Cabinet for Economic Development for all their support."
