Success

London and Laurel County is a geographically diverse area in South-Central Kentucky with ideal features for industry and commerce. Among them, three key benefits stand out:

Proximity for logistics and commuting

We’re located at the crossroads of I-75 and Highway 80, and we’re are one of the most progressive counties in the area in terms of economic growth and infrastructure. Your future employees will also have access to a state-of-the-art medical facility and excellent technical and soft-skills training programs, while logistics and shipping is made easy, with many major U.S. cities only a few hours away.

An affordable business infrastructure

Not only do we have lower utility costs than national average, we can assist you with servicing and loans, we have one of the lowest tax base rates in a multi-county area, and we can offer you a flat rate for buildings or a reasonable set price per acre for build-ready sites. To top it off, we don’t charge a triple-net lease. All are reasons why you can feel confident building in Laurel County.

A skilled and ready workforce

We have a skilled yet affordable workforce. Our community has a Center for Innovation, which offers high school students English, Math, and technical training that count towards college hours. There is a Somerset Community College Branch that offers vocational courses. We are also home to 8 call centers which provide soft skills training.
