There are several reasons why Bardstown, Kentucky was chosen for three consecutive years by Site Selection Magazine as one of the top 50 small communities in the country to locate or expand a company. Our centralized location, access to major highways and airports, a willing workforce and an excellent quality of life make doing business here affordable and profitable.
From our tradition-rich bourbon distilleries to our more recently-established automotive manufacturers, more than 40 local, national and international manufacturing facilities have chosen Bardstown and Nelson County as the place they call “home”.
We are proud of our beautifully designed industrial parks that offer the most up-to-date infrastructure, rail service, easy access to major highways and some of the lowest electric rates in the country. Louisville, Kentucky, the nation’s 16th largest city, is only 35 miles north and offers an international airport, an UPS hub, a major university and access to 3 major interstates.
