ASHLAND - Braidy Industries' decision to build its planned aluminum plant in EastPark industrial center off Interstate 64 west of Ashland is expected to lead to 16 to 24 satellite companies heading to the Tri-State and possibly filling up the industrial park's available land, according to local officials.

Earlier this month, Braidy Industries announced it was changing its plan to build its $1.4 billion aluminum plant in South Shore, Kentucky, near the Ohio River, to EastPark, a nearly 1,000-acre industrial park where Boyd, Greenup and Carter counties come together.
