Ramp producer Homecare Products to expand EZ-ACCESS manufacturing operation in Morganfield

Homecare Products Inc., a producer of portable and modular ramps that operates under the name EZ-ACCESS, will invest $650,000 and create 10 full-time jobs with the expansion of its facility in Morganfield.

The investment will allow EZ-ACCESS to lease an additional 13,100-square-foot facility in Union County near its current operation, and purchase new equipment for increased manufacturing capacity. The company will relocate manufacturing and assembly operations of its Power Access products from another facility, as well as establish a production line for the Passport porch lift. Positions to be created through the expansion include welders, production assemblers, warehouse employees and material handlers. The investment also will cover the cost of facility upgrades, such as increased lighting, improved wiring, added security features and an additional parking and truck dock area. Work on the expansion is expected to begin in early 2018 and be completed by midyear.

“There continues to be a joint commitment to growing business in Kentucky and bringing more jobs to both Union County and the City of Morganfield,” said Don Everard, CEO of Homecare Products. “We will continue to seek more ways to expand our operations, and believe in the support of the state, county and city, as well as our many hard-working and dedicated employees.”

“Homecare Products has been a major part of the corporate community in Union County for the past decade,” said Gov. Matt Bevin. “This company provides a great and necessary service to those with limited mobility. Their latest expansion is evidence that Homecare Products made the right decision when they chose to locate the EZ-ACCESS operation in Kentucky. We are grateful for this continued confidence in the Commonwealth and look forward to many years of additional growth.”

Homecare Products, based in Washington, was founded in1984 and manufactures portable and modular ramp systems for use by individuals in need of assistance with mobility. The company offers products for both residential and commercial use.

Homecare’s EZ-ACCESS operation has been located in Morganfield since 2007 and currently employs 37 people.
