Three businesses with local branches have been offered tax incentives for expansion projects in Louisville.

The businesses considering expansion are DuPont, DAE Holdings and Captive Indoor Media. Together, the three expansions would create 77 new jobs in Louisville. Eileen Pickett with Greater Louisville Inc. says the skill sets for each business are varied.

“The best way to put it is it’s a mix of kinds of jobs. DAE is a metal fabrication and machine shop so there will be people with those kinds of skills as well as some supervisory skills potentially,” she says.

Pickett says DuPont would expand its capacity to create a new synthetic material and Captive, a digital sign software company, would add new office space.

If all three businesses choose to expand in Louisville, they would create $3.5 million in new payroll.
