Companies continue to grow in Western Kentucky as today Gov. Andy Beshear announced SITEX Corp., a family-owned uniform and linen rental business based in Henderson, will expand with a $4.5 million investment that will create 30 full-time jobs.
“I am thrilled to see yet another existing Kentucky business expand in our state,” Gov.
