OWENSBORO, Ky. (AP) - A western Kentucky company is expanding and expects to add 30 jobs in Daviess County.

Castlen Welding & Manufacturing LLC was started in 2008. The company makes material-handling equipment for the fertilizer and grain industries and erects and installs the equipment on-site. Castlen also builds grain storage tanks and liquid fertilizer facilities and offers welding and custom fabrication services.

Gov. Steve Beshear’s office says the existing plant will continue to be used for custom fabrication and welding repair. Its new facility on U.S. 60 will involve a $3.9 million investment and will allow the company to expand into welding and manufacturing of conveyors, hoppers, conditioners, towers and bucket elevators.

The state has approved tax incentives up to $350,000.

The new plant is expected to be operational next year.
