Balluff Inc. broke ground on its new building in Florence, Ky. on Thursday, April 11.

“Balluff has found a successful home in Northern Kentucky, with steady growth here over the past 30 years,” said Gov. Steve Beshear. “We’re proud to have the company’s U.S. headquarters in Kentucky, and especially happy to see the company continue to expand, adding 24 new jobs and investing $6 million in the Commonwealth.”

Balluff’s new 48,000-square-foot building is expected to be completed in March 2014, and will be a state-of-the art customer support, training, and sales and marketing center. The facility will include “green concepts” and worker-friendly features, such as 100 percent employee access to daylight from workspaces. Balluff is expected to boost employment by adding approximately 60-100 jobs (local and across the country) over the next five years.
