Cynthiana’s E-Z Pack Refuse Hauling Solutions plans $6.8 million expansion, to create 100 new jobs

E-Z Pack Refuse Hauling Solutions LLC, a manufacturer of commercial truck bodies, will invest more than $6.85 million and create 100 jobs with an expansion at its Harrison County facility.

E-Z Pack’s parent company, Commercial Specialty Truck Holdings LLC (CSTH), is negotiating to purchase the 350,000-square-foot facility where it has operated the past dozen years, as the company currently leases the property. E-Z Pack, with its sister company One Source Parts, is launching a new product line and will manufacture and sell front-discharge drums and service parts for the ready-mix industry, which will contribute to the creation of 100 salaried and hourly jobs. Company leaders expect work on the project to start in mid-2018 and finish by the end of 2020.

“Work with the Kentucky Cabinet for Economic Development and the Governor’s office has been a very rewarding experience,” said Frank Busicchia, president of CSTH. “We are proud to add additional manufacturing jobs in the state of Kentucky and appreciate the support as we continue to grow the business.”

E-Z Pack, purchased by CSTH in 2014, has been located in Cynthiana since 2006, where it currently employs 240 people. E-Z Pack manufactures refuse bodies and sells to a wide array of customers, including dealers, municipalities and private haulers.

“Kentucky is the perfect place for companies to grow their business, and E-Z Pack is the latest example highlighting that potential,” Gov. Matt Bevin said. “It is great news that the company is expanding its presence in the marketplace, and we are here to offer any assistance we can to ensure this job growth continues well into the future. Congratulations to the people of Cynthiana and surrounding communities, and thank you to E-Z Pack for its continued commitment to our state.”

E-Z Pack shares its Cynthiana facility with sister company Continental Mixers, which CSTH also purchased in 2014 and announced Continental’s relocation from Texas in summer 2015. The company holds a large presence in the rear-discharge mixer market, supplying ready mix bodies to customers. It aims to attain the same level of success with its front-discharge units.
