EnerBlü CEO: It’s ‘refreshing’ to see ‘high-quality’ East Ky. workforce
Tuesday, February 13, 2018
EnerBlü’s December announcement that it would be bringing its battery manufacturing facility to the commonwealth created a boom of interest for Kentuckians — current and former — who are looking for a chance to put their skills to work.
According to EnerBlü President and CEO Daniel Elliott, his company has received more than 1,200 applications since the City of Pikeville hosted its economic development announcement at the East Kentucky Expo Center.
Elliott said the company has identified two potential buildings for its Lexington location, which will begin operating while the Pikeville structure is under construction and will serve as a corporate office for the company. Elliott said negotiations are currently ongoing, in terms of finance, power and spacial issues. But, he added, the Pikeville location is still very much a priority.
