Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear announced continued economic growth in Jefferson County as JQOL Global, a certified Minority Business Enterprise and full-service civil engineering firm, plans to locate a new facility in Louisville, creating 113 full-time Kentucky jobs with a $6.4 million investment.

“When a company locates a new operation in Kentucky, its leaders are choosing to trust and believe in our state’s unique resources, skilled workforce and business-friendly environment,” said Gov. Beshear. “JQOL is yet another quality company bringing its services and well-paying job opportunities to the commonwealth. I want to thank the company’s leadership and look forward to their success in Louisville.”

The project will see the company establish a new operation in an existing 5,000-square-foot building located at 501 Baxter Ave. in Louisville. JQOL’s investment will create 113 new job opportunities for the Louisville and Jefferson County communities with an average total hourly compensation of $59.15, including benefits. The new facility will serve as the company’s second Kentucky location, with an existing operation in Owensboro.

“On behalf of JQOL Inc., we extend our heartfelt gratitude to the city of Louisville and the state of Kentucky for their invaluable assistance and incentives,” said Jarvis Jointer, president of JQOL Global. “Your support has been instrumental in making our new location a reality, and we look forward to contributing to the growth and prosperity of this vibrant community.”

Founded in 2019, JQOL Global is a certified Minority Business Enterprise (MBE/DBE) and full-service civil engineering firm based in Indianapolis.

Louisville Mayor Craig Greenberg looks forward to JQOL joining the community and bringing quality job opportunities with them: “Louisville is thrilled to welcome JQOL Global to our city, along with the 113 new, good-paying jobs the company is creating for our people. This investment underscores our city’s successful business environment and the talented future leaders emerging from the University of Louisville’s J.B. Speed School of Engineering.
