LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — A logistics firm is expanding in three locations in Kentucky and adding 525 new jobs, officials said.

Total Quality Logistics is expanding its offices in Lexington, Louisville and unincorporated Boone County, Gov. Andy Beshear announced on Thursday in a statement.

The move is due to increased demand for the company’s transportation services, officials said. The Lexington location expects to hire 300 new full-time employees, while Boone County anticipates hiring 125 and Louisville 100 workers. The jobs will include entry-level and senior positions across sales, customer service and operations, the statement said.

Total Quality Logistics has operated in Kentucky for more than a decade and currently employs about 800 people.

“Kentucky’s economy continues to grow, and our logistics sector is a major reason for that success,” Beshear said.
