Belcan Corp., an engineering services and technical staffing provider, today announced an expansion in downtown Lexington’s Vine Center that will create 100 jobs and mean a $1.2 million investment.
Belcan is planning to lease an additional 15,000 square feet in the Vine Center to accommodate the increased number of engineers needed to support its new customer, Pratt & Whitney, a commercial and military aerospace gas turbine engine supplier. Belcan opened its Lexington office in 2005 to service a growing aerospace contract with Sikorsky Aircraft Corp.
“We are grateful to the Lexington business community and our employees for their efforts and support over the last 10 years,” says Lance Kwasniewski, CEO of Belcan. “We are looking forward to continued growth in the years ahead.”
“The Belcan story is a testament to the entrepreneurial spirit of Kentucky,” said Gov. Steve Beshear, who joined state, local and company officials in making the announcement. “When faced with business challenges, company officials opted to reach outside their current portfolio to grow. I commend their hard work and determination and congratulate them on this achievement.”
Belcan is headquartered in Cincinnati and has more than 6,000 employees in 49 locations serving more than 600 active clients globally. The company is a supplier of engineering, project management and technical staffing solutions to a wide array of industries.
