Of course Brown-Forman is gonna develop and move jobs to other states.
The company behind Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey will create a barrel-making plant in Lawrence County, bringing about 200 jobs to north Alabama, state and company officials announced Thursday.
The new facility, which represents Brown-Forman Corp.’s second move into Alabama in less than 12 months, involves a $55 million to $60 million capital investment for the company, according to Greg Roshkowski, vice president and general manager of Brown-Forman Cooperages.
State and local governments are providing the company with tax breaks, land and worker training worth about $63 million, according to information from the governor’s office.
Because both Metro Government and Frankfort are utterly up a creek, you can bet B-F isn’t just rumoring a partial move to Southern Indiana.
In fact, we’re all betting you can safely hold your breath on moves. More and more transitions like this are going to take place.
With other companies, too.
