Container maker expanding in Kentucky

The Associated PressJuly 10, 2014 

— Dart Container Corp. is adding jobs at its plant in south-central Kentucky.

The Horse Cave facility makes cups, lids, bowls, plates and deli containers and opened its facility in 1980. About 1,400 people work there now.

Gov. Steve Beshear's office says the company expects to create up to 30 jobs with its $23 million investment to build a warehouse in Horse Cave. It will be the facility's 11th expansion.

The state has given preliminary approval for tax incentives of up to $900,000 for the project.

Dart's headquarters is in Mason, Michigan.
