MURRAY, Ky. (AP) β€” A manufacturer of electrical power distribution connectors plans to locate in western Kentucky and create 150 jobs, officials said.

Hollobus Technologies Inc., a subsidiary of engineering design technology company Superior Tray Systems, is investing $2.25 million to move its headquarters and some operations to a former Briggs & Stratton plant in Murray, a statement from Gov. Andy Beshear said.

The Kentucky location will produce a new product line that is an alternative to electrical cabling for large industrial projects, officials said. The company has partnered with Murray State University to establish a pipeline for workers and said it intends to focus on hiring veterans.

β€œIt is great to see continued economic growth in Western Kentucky as this region recovers and builds back following last year’s devastating tornado,” Beshear said.
