AIRPORT NOTED AS FACTOR IN NEW INDUSTRY LOCATING IN MOREHEAD

A corporate officer for Independent Stave Company, Inc. recently stated in a letter to Board Chair Mike Gray that the Morehead-Rowan County Regional Airport was an important factor in the company’s decision to expand their business to Rowan County, bringing 75 new jobs to the community. David Waugh, Secretary/Treasurer noted that “being able to efficiently travel to Morehead is very important to us because our core internal management team and one of the principal owners are based in Missouri.”

“In today’s global competition for new business and industry, our airport is an important asset that our community leadership and economic developers can market to attract new jobs to our community. The airport is just one of our many assets that make us attractive to new buisness startups and expansions,” according to Gray.
