Lakeshore Learning Materials picks Midway Station for new distribution center

Lakeshore Learning Materials will build a second facility near its current location in Midway Station, a move local leaders say will create 100 new jobs and eventually bring the total number of employees to nearly 350. In a statement, Mayor Grayson Vandegrift said, “We are extremely thrilled that Lakeshore has decided to once again make a major investment in Midway, Kentucky. They have been an outstanding corporate partner and we are thrilled to share in their success story. This is further evidence that Midway is open for business, and that business is booming. …” Vandegrift thanked Lakeshore officials, Judge-Executive James Kay, the Woodford County Economic Development Authority and its chairman, John Soper, the Kentucky Cabinet for Economic Development and the Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority. Kay congratulated and thanked Lakeshore leaders and its employees. “Lakeshore has quickly become one of our best corporate citizens. We value their contribution and we are blessed to work with them as a partner in our community,” Kay said in a statement. “Woodford County continues to prove that we are the best place to do business in Kentucky. It’s a pleasure to work with Mayor Vandegrift to bring jobs and opportunity to Midway and Woodford County. We’re showing that working together with positive leadership gets results for our people.”
