Simpsonville Mayor Cary Vowels tells WLKY the city has been working for years to fill that 80-acre plot of land.”It was a really good feeling because I knew a little bit about the company, and they provide a high paying wage and a good quality product,” he said.KCC Manufacturing produces HVAC products and offers engineering services for various companies. Vowels said, “The increase in jobs is outstanding, the pay is outstanding. Normally in Shelby County we get offered pay that is lower, but in this case it’s $29/hour with benefits and it well exceeds our expectations.”City leaders worked with Shelby County, the state and KCC to secure the deal, offering an occupational tax rebate of up to $200,000 per year for up to 10 years. Vowels said the state has agreed to match the incentive for up to $10 million.The mayor said it won’t negatively impact current residents. In fact, he says, it could benefit them by reducing property tax rates and potentially lead to more economic growth for the area.”It brings in the potential for other developments to occur, like housing developments. It also helps the tributary of restaurants and the outlet mall and other stores around Simpsonville,” he said.Vowels said he’s excited to diversify the employment base in Simpsonville and looks forward to breaking ground on the project in January 2022.For more information on KCC Manufacturing, visit KCCCompanies.com.
