eBay expanding facilities in Kentucky

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - An eBay-owned company is planning to expand its operations in northern Kentucky with a 630,000-square-foot facility.

A statement from Gov. Steve Beshear's office says the expansion in Walton by eBay Enterprise would create about 300 full-time jobs.

It would be the company's third facility in Kentucky, with operations in Louisville and Shepherdsville. eBay Enterprise is a provider of e-commerce technology and services.

The Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority preliminarily approved the company for tax incentives up to $2.3 million through the Kentucky Business Investment program. The new facility is expected to open in the summer.
