Holley Performance Products, Inc., will establish a $9.15 million facility in Franklin, Ky., creating 30 full-time jobs, Gov. Matt Bevin announced this week.

"We are excited to see the economic impact of Holley Performance Products' newest operation," Bevin said in a statement. "Holley is a storied name in the American tradition of hotrods, drag racing, muscle cars and stock-car racing, and will be a great addition to Kentucky's burgeoning automotive industry. Our administration, along with the Franklin community, are thrilled to welcome the additional jobs and investment Holley is bringing to the Commonwealth."

The title sponsor of the Holley USRA Stock Car division, Holley will locate a distribution operation in a leased, 200,000-square-foot building in Franklin, expected to open in early 2018. The operation will be about 20 miles from Holley's corporate headquarters in Bowling Green, according to a news release.

The new facility brings the company's total Kentucky employment to approximately 330. Holley in 1952 located its carburetor manufacturing plant in Bowling Green, and moved to its corporate headquarters in 1993.

"We've been introducing innovative new product solutions that have driven growth in our business to the point that we are out of space in our current Bowling Green facility. This new location in Franklin will allow us to free up much-needed floor space for more manufacturing production activities," said Terry Rutledge, Holley's senior vice president of operations.

Holley Performance Products has been the undisputed leader in fuel systems for over 100 years. Holley carburetors have powered every NASCAR Monster Energy Cup team and nearly every NHRA Pro Stock champion for four decades. Now, Holley EFI products power these cars and are dominating the performance world. Holley products for GM's popular LS engine are dominating the LS scene as well. Holley's products also include performance fuel pumps, intake manifolds and engine dress–up products for street performance, race and marine applications. As a single solution, or partnered with products from other Holley companies, Holley can give you the edge you need over the competition.
