Dajcor Aluminum Ltd., a Canadian manufacturer of extruded and fabricated aluminum products, will invest approximately $19.6 million to locate its first U.S, operation in Perry County, Ky. The project will create up to 265 full-time jobs. The operation will provide Dajcor additional capacity for aluminum extrusion and fabrication to serve a variety of North American industries. Operations are scheduled to begin by the end of 2019.

The facility will be located in the former American Woodmark facility in Perry County’s Coalfields Industrial Park. Retrofitting and setup will begin immediately. Dajcor, headquartered in Chatham-Kent, Ontario, was founded in 2010.
