A Paintsville company is expanding and it could mean hundreds of new jobs for Eastern Kentucky.
Johnson County Chamber of Commerce officials say the company Celerity Automation is planning to grow their business in Paintsville. The idea is to develop and produce a new technology product for industries to use in manufacturing.
"They're getting ready to gear up and we consider them one of the best kept secrets in Johnson County," said Fran Jarrell with the Johnson County Chamber of Commerce.
Johnson County officials say the new jobs could include both engineering and manufacturing positions.
