Governor Eric Holcomb will Friday join officials in Boone County to break ground on a more than $100 million project. United Kingdom-based packaging company DS Smith Plc is building its first U.S. manufacturing facility at the Lebanon Business Park and plans to add up to 160 jobs by the end of 2020.
Plans for the project were first announced in late October. The Lebanon City Council has already approved more than $5 million in incentives for the project.
Lebanon Mayor Matt Gentry will also be on hand for the groundbreaking ceremony, which is scheduled to begin at 10:00 a.m. at the Lebanon Business Park.
