MAYSVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Gov. Matt Bevin says more manufacturing jobs are coming to Kentucky.

Bevin said in a statement that Pella, Iowa-based Precision Pulley and Idler plans to locate a $10.8 million manufacturing and distributing operation in an existing 105,000-square-foot building in Maysville and will hire 134 full-time employees over the next 10 years. The company supplies idlers, pulleys, bearings and other products.

PPI President and CEO Roger Brown said the Maysville facility allows additional capacity to meet the company's growing demands. The company operates 12 facilities in the U.S. and also has locations in Canada and Chile.

Bevin says the jobs will benefit the economy in northeastern Kentucky.
