Beam announces 600,000-square-foot distribution center in Franklin County

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Saturday, February 1, 2014 11:50 AM EST

Construction should start late this month on a 600,000-square-foot distribution center that spirits maker Beam Inc. is building in Franklin County.

The State Journal said the $20 million to $25 million center was announced Thursday just after Franklin County Fiscal Court unanimously approved a $200,000 economic incentive for Beam.

The facility is expected to open early next year with about 60 employees. It will exclusively serve Beam's distilled spirits brands and warehouse its finished goods, bottled in Frankfort, before they are shipped to distributors.

Beam U.S. manufacturing director James Morehead told local officials in a letter that Beam had considered sites in Franklin and Woodford counties.

Morehead said in September that the project is mainly to accommodate moving the company's Pinnacle Vodka and Calico Jack Rum brands to Frankfort.
