SAALFELD REDISTRIBUTION BREAKS GROUND IN HEBRON

Frankfort, Ky. – Governor Ernie Fletcher and Economic Development Cabinet Secretary Gene Strong announced that Saalfeld ReDistribution will break ground today on its new 483,000 square foot customer service center in ProLogis Park 275 in Hebron creating 40 new jobs for Kentuckians.

"Every new business groundbreaking we participate in is an affirmation of my commitment to bring more jobs and economic opportunity to Kentucky," said Governor Fletcher. "I am thrilled the Saalfeld Redistribution has decided to locate in Hebron and offer new jobs for local families."

Saalfeld ReDistribution is a key business of xpedx, which is International Paper’s national distributor of printing paper, packaging, facility supplies and graphic imaging pre-press equipment and supplies. The Saalfeld ReDistribution business is focused on selling only to distributors, and currently sells facility supplies to distributors in 12 states across the country. Saalfeld ReDistribution’s key customer segments include Jan San, paper, and office supply distributors.

Carol Butler, xpedx Tri-State Group Vice President, said, "This move will allow us to better leverage our assets within the Tri-State area to more efficiently run our local operations and better serve our customers. Additionally, this move is aligned with our long-term growth objectives for our business."

The Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority (KEDFA) preliminarily approved Saalfeld ReDistribution for tax benefits under the Kentucky Jobs Development Act (KJDA), an incentive program aimed at increasing the number of service-related jobs in the state.
