Beshear Writers Day

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Gov. Andy Beshear has launched a supply chain initiative for Kentucky companies. He said Monday the “Supply Kentucky” effort aims to create a more interconnected Kentucky economy by matching manufacturers with suppliers. The goal is to bolster job growth, reduce manufacturing costs and create more secure supply chains. Manufacturing accounts for 12.5% of Kentucky’s workforce. A first step is an online “Supply Kentucky” platform with a searchable database of the state’s suppliers and manufacturers. The portal is open now for companies to register. It should enable companies to search for other companies to satisfy their supply chain needs.
