“If you are looking for a site to expand your company’s operations, Greenup County has an affordable cost of doing business with people ready to work,” Bobby Hall, Greenup County’s judge executive, said. “We are in the business of cutting red tape and welcoming investment opportunities with open arms.

The site highlights our ample, well-trained workforce, exceptional transportation options, and multiple build-ready sites with access to all utilities and infrastructure,” Thompson said. “We will continue to build content on this site as we promote the community across the state and nation.” is one of many initiatives the county’s officials have undertaken in 2023 to improve opportunities for residents and make it easy for businesses to locate and grow in the northeastern Kentucky community.
