Powering North America’s automotive industry with top-quality components
The 4 Star Industrial Park offers an ideal location and excellent resources for companies serving North America’s automotive industry.
For starters, the Park is within a day’s drive of all of Automotive Alley, home to 90 percent of the nation’s auto plants and suppliers — and Kentucky is the third-largest automotive production state in the nation, with nearly 500 auto plants and component manufacturers supplying the global market. You’ll find a half-dozen assembly plants within a half day’s drive. In addition, northwest Kentucky is home to a large number of companies in metals and die casting that supply component manufacturers.
The 4 Star Industrial Park is easily accessible by road, rail, river, and air. By road, we’re just five minutes from Interstate 69, for fast access to Detroit, Indianapolis, Memphis, and the Gulf Coast. It’s served by a CSX rail spur, and there are plenty of air options for both corporate planes and air cargo, with the UPS Worldport® in Louisville just over two hours away (and the FedEx Superhub in Memphis within a half-day’s drive).
Within 75 miles of the Park, you’ll find more than half a million workers. To keep that labor force strong and skilled, the business community works closely with K-12 and postsecondary education leaders, ensuring that students receive the training they need to serve the goals of local employers. Henderson Community College and the Northwest Kentucky Training Consortium offer career-focused programs to train new workers and enhance the skills of those already in the labor force. Both also provide customized training to fit the needs of employers.
Utility rates are much more affordable than those in surrounding regions and across the state line, and the Park’s utility infrastructure is already in place. Electric power is abundant and reliable, with two substations to reduce the potential and impact of downtime. There’s also plenty of natural gas, and every site in the Park has earned the AT&T Fiber Ready designation.
