Ingram's Water & Air Equipment - Jason Ingram, Owner

"Graves County Economic Development gave us the tools we needed to grow and expand our business without inhibition. We were originally looking at other properties in other counties, but none of them checked every box. When we began our relationship with GCED, they gave us the tools, the guidance, and the ability to find the perfect space for our business to flourish. They were able to accommodate our every need, such as easy access to a main highway and fiber optics. Graves County Economic Development was extremely willing to help us achieve success, and we’ve felt extremely taken care of ever since the start of our affiliation."

PRCO America, Inc. - Barry Heath, Plant Manager

“The management team at PRCO America has worked with GCED since we were beginning to look for a location to house our refractory brick manufacturing facility. There were many options in other states as well as other areas in Kentucky, but the folks at GCED were able to assist us in finding an existing building that fit our needs very well and provide several incentives for locating in the Mayfield / Graves County area. They have also assisted us with employee hiring and in finding training solutions for our new employees. We have been in this location for over a year now and still work closely with the folks at GCED.�

Atlas Equipment Services - Regina Browning, HR Director/Safety Coordinator

“Graves County Economic Development has provided us with the perfect solutions to strengthen our business. They sought us out to let us know all the resources that they had available to share with us. Their interest and eagerness to help us succeed as a business has given us tools to work with. Through one of their programs, a Targeted Business and Industry video was produced by Advantage Kentucky Alliance. We have used this video to showcase our target industries on various marketing platforms.�

Mayfield Consumer Products - Michael Staten, Plant Manager

“Pre COVID and Post COVID, GCED has been great in helping our business grow and creating the growth opportunities for our team. As a medium sized business, GCED understands the business environment we are under and the speed to market needs of our customers in getting things done quickly. Without the help of GCED, many opportunities would’ve gone to our competitors around the US and not to Graves County KY, and it’s because of their support as to why we’ve been able to grow, year over year in this area. Thanks to GCED for all their support and continued efforts in growing the economy, even during tough times, within Graves County.�
