Andrews Electronics moves to Boone County, plans to hire 25

The arrival of Andrews Electronics (AE) suggests Northern Kentucky's Boone County is weathering the current economic storm with ease. Not only will the consumer electronics giant inject vim and vigor into the local economy, it's also going to deliver jobs; 25 to be exact.

AE, a division of MTI-Andrews based in Hillsboro, Ore., is one of America's largest consumer electronics parts distribution and reverse logistics companies. Alongside dispensing goods and handling logistics, AE greases the wheels of turn-key retail shopping operations at the nation's largest consumer electronics outlets.

In short, they're in demand.

"Andrews Electronics will be a fantastic asset to Kentucky‚Äôs business base," says Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear.  "We look forward to their contribution to the local economy as they grow right here in Kentucky."

And with a 73,500 square feet facility in the Skyport V Building, owned by Duke Realty Corporation and located at 2265 Progress Drive, Hebron, KY, they've got room to grow.

This strategic location takes advantage of Kentucky's central location. From this base, AE can inexpensively ship products to anywhere in the nation in two days or less. This bodes well for AE's future workforce which includes 25 new employees. AE will kick off its hiring efforts by holding a job fair at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Airport Marriott on February 27 and 28.   

"Northern Kentucky offers a skilled and available technology workforce," says Chris Remy, COO, MTI - Andrews.  "We will begin hiring qualified workers very soon."

Remy says local and state organizations such as Northern Kentucky Tri-ED made it easy for AE to make its new home in Northern Kentucky.

"Current economic times underscore the importance of a diversified business base," says Gary Moore, Chair-Elect of Northern Kentucky Tri-ED and Boone County Judge-Executive.  "We are pleased to welcome Andrews Electronics to Boone County and Northern Kentucky."
