AEC member Dajcor Aluminum plans to create up to 256 full-time jobs and invest nearly $20M to locate new operations in Kentucky. The Canadian aluminum extruder and fabricator new facility will provide additional capacity and help the company to better reach their U.S. customers. Retrofitting of the old American Woodmark facility in Hazard, KY, will begin immediately and operations are slated to begin by the end of 2019.

“We are excited to get going on this expansion project for Dajcor,” said Mike Kilby, president and CEO of Dajcor. “This project will not only expand our capacity but also our geographic reach as our first manufacturing facility in the USA. Perry County, in Eastern Kentucky, offers a ready workforce as well as excellent state-of-the-art fabrication training facilities within the area. This fits well with our ‘All Under One Roof’ aluminum extrusion and fabrication business model.”
