Operating from India, U.A.E., Canada and Mexico, the UFLEX expertise spans the entire spectrum of flexible packaging applications.”
An April 13th press release from Governor Steve Beshears’ office stated, “Following a weekend trip to New Delhi, India to finalize negotiations with UFLEX Ltd., Gov. Steve Beshear today joined company officials and community leaders in Elizabethtown to announce the flexible packaging company will locate its first U.S. manufacturing plant in Hardin County. The new location project will occur in phases, initially creating 125 new jobs and a $90 million investment, ultimately doubling in scope for a total investment of at least $180 million and 250 jobs.” Flex Film is the first Indian owned manufacturer in Kentucky.
