Custom Cooler To Locate In Todd County

There is good economic news for the Todd County area. Governor Beshear announced Tuesday that Custom Cooler plans to establish a manufacturing facility in Todd County. Custom Cooler, who manufactures custom walk-in coolers, freezers and freezer doors, will create 75 jobs with the nearly 5.8-million project. The Todd County manufacturing facility will be Custom Cooler’s second, and the 117,000-square foot operation will serve customers throughout the eastern and central United States, and internationally. Todd County Judge Executive Daryl Greenfield spoke with the News Edge about the announcement.

Greenfield said the announcement is a big boost for his county.

As for when operations are expected to start, Greenfield says Custom Cooler is hoping to be up and running in some capacity later this summer.

Officials say the company selected Todd County because of its central location. Ray Tolcher, vice president and general manager of Custom Cooler says his company is excited about the decision to locate in Elkton, and they look forward to building a strong business and long lasting relationships. Established in California in 2006, Custom Cooler serves more than 300 domestic and international customers in the food industry.
