Chappel Allen of Kentucky Machine and Engineering, said he hopes the plant will be in Trigg County for a long time to come. Although it officially opened Dec. 1, 1971, they decided to have the open house on Sunday to avoid cold, snowy, sleety weather, he said, adding that they like to support local causes.
“We try to give back to Trigg County,” Allen said. “Trigg County’s been good to us … we have an obligation to give back to the county. We support a lot of the kids in the school system … We have a lot to give to Trigg County.”
Allen, 76, said there aren’t a lot of students that have come to him for support that didn’t get at the very least a contribution. He said they held the open house because they have a responsibility to show the county what it is that they do.
