New location to help company meet growing customer and industry demand.

Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear highlighted continued momentum within the state’s surging manufacturing sector as SRC of Lexington will be expanding its operation with a new facility in Fayette County, investing $15.3 million and creating 60 quality, Kentucky jobs.

“What an exciting time to be a manufacturer in the commonwealth,” said Gov. Beshear. “We are seeing incredible growth within this key industry in every corner of the state, which is helping provide quality, well-paying jobs for Kentuckians and their families. SRC has had success here in Lexington for a long time, and I am excited to see that continue that for years to come. Congratulations to SRC of Lexington and its leadership team for this exciting next step as a company.”

SRC of Lexington Inc., a subsidiary of SRC Holdings Corp., is the leading remanufacturer of OEM and aftermarket products in the construction, mining, natural gas and power generation markets. The new location will help the company meet growing customer and industry demand.

The multiyear expansion project began in March with the purchase of a manufacturing facility in Lexington. The building features nearly 180,000 square feet of manufacturing, warehouse and office space on 14 acres, allowing for increased capacity to expand SRC’s teardown, machining and production capabilities. Throughout 2024, SRC plans to conduct facility renovations and improvements to meet its operational needs, followed by a multiphase move to the new facility in 2025. The $15.3 million project will create 60 new jobs, bringing the company’s total statewide employment to over 230.

“This expansion is a pivotal development for our organization,” said Tim Stack, executive vice president at SRC Holdings Corp. “This state-of-the-art facility dramatically increases our capacity and efficiency, allowing us to better serve our customers and grow. Thanks to collaboration with the Kentucky Cabinet for Economic Development, Commerce Lexington and Lexington Fayette Urban County Government, we are set to grow in the Lexington economy and push the boundaries of innovation and sustainability in the remanufacturing industry.”

SRC of Lexington was founded in the 1960s and has grown from 65 workers to over 230 employees today, while adding several new product lines and customers to their portfolio. SRC of Lexington’s parent company, Springfield Remanufacturing Corp., has become a thriving company of approximately 1,700 engaged employees spanning 10 business units across a variety of industries.

Lexington Mayor Linda Gorton congratulated SRC on its success: “We work hard to help local businesses grow. It’s especially exciting to see this growth in manufacturing in this employee-owned business. SRC’s success is Lexington’s success.”

Commerce Lexington President and CEO Bob Quick said he is thrilled to see another quality company expand within the Lexington and Fayette County communities: “SRC of Lexington has been a great corporate partner in our efforts to strengthen the greater Lexington region’s economy. We are thrilled that SRC was successful in finding a larger facility and will continue its growth right here in Fayette County. A core component of our economic development strategy involves business retention and expansion, and our team is committed to helping our existing businesses grow and prosper. Congratulations to SRC on its continued success!”
