f you own or pass a Toyota SUV or light truck, chances are that KOWA’s factory in Corbin has played a part in its construction. “We don’t actually make parts,” said Kazushi “Kaz” Takahashi, Operations Manager at KOWA Kentucky of the Corbin facility. “We do surface finishing of automotive parts for Toyota.” Parts, such as the fuel rails that attach to the engine chambers, are plated with nickel. “These are made out of metal,” Takahashi explained. “Therefore, if it’s used by itself only, it will rust. It will possibly corrode with the surrounding environment or the gas itself.” Takahashi said previously that the process is called, “electroless nickel plating,” technically known as Electroless Ni-P Surface Treatment Plating which uses a strictly chemical reaction, as

opposed to an electromagnetic reaction. The difference is that with the electroless reaction, it thoroughly coats the interior of the pipes that will carry the fuel. “This is where our technique comes into play,” Takahashi explained. “As long as the chemicals are evenly and continuously replenished and exposed to the part that you want to plate, it will form the nickel coating on the inside and the outside, uniformly.” The parts that Corbin treats are manufactured at Optics USA in Morristown, Tennessee. After being treated at Corbin, the parts are then shipped out to Toyota’s manufacturing plants in Georgetown, Huntsville, Alabama, and Buffalo, West Virginia. The Corbin facility treats approximately 1.3 mil-

lion pieces annually. When KOWA opened the plant in 2015, it had 10 employees. “We are currently at about 23 employees,” Takahashi said noting the plant is running two shifts. Takahashi said the Corbin facility is currently operating one line, but, should it become necessary, there is room at the plant to expand to a second line. Takahashi said while its Corbin facility is treating auto parts, the process could be used on other machine parts. “What separates us from electroplating is that electroplating is typically a little cheaper,” Takahashi explained, noting that KOWA’s electroless plating process works better on anything that has a very complex texture or shape, such as pipe, or small valves that have holes in them.” “Our boundaries are not really limited to the automotive industry,” Takahashi said. “It is just that has been a big industry in the United States, and a very stable one too, especially with us be-

KOWA purchased the existing speculative building and 19.7 acres in the Southeast Kentucky Business Park off of the Corbin bypass for $1.6 million, with plans to invest $8.3 million into the Corbin operation. “We think it’s a success, but there is more room to grow,” Takahashi said of the Corbin facility. “We are still struggling to stretch our network across the nation, in order to gain new projects, so we may serve many customers out there that

orcht Bank’s motto is “Happier Banking,” and one of its ways of doing so is by having happier employees. In 2020, Forcht Bank was named one of the “Best Places to Work” winners in Kentucky for the sixth consecutive year. “We take great pride in this as the selections are primarily based on an employee survey. Our employees have anonymously communicated to an independent third party that they are happy with Forcht Bank in areas of employee communication, growth opportunities, compensation and more. That is a huge compliment to our management team, and the bank as a whole, for continuing to focus and improve upon the bank’s culture. Our goal is to create happier employees who provide happier banking that ultimately creates happier communities,” said Forcht Bank Marketing Director Andrew Miller. Forcht Bank’s mission is to consistently exceed its

customers’ expectations. Miller said the bank’s strategy to fulfill this mission is a multi-pronged approach consisting of three things: recruiting and retaining the best people, delivering great products and services, and providing digital banking solutions its customers want. “With a focus on these three areas, we believe we can deliver a truly unique community banking experience,” Miller said. Forcht Bank was founded in 1985 by Terry E. Forcht when he and a group of investors opened their first bank, Tri-County National Bank in Corbin with $1.5 million in assets. In the years that followed, Forcht founded or acquired 10 additional community banks, including: Williamsburg National Bank, Laurel National Bank and McCreary National Bank. On Dec. 31, 2007, the 10 different banks were consolidated under one charter and the names were officially changed to Forcht Bank.

Winter 2021 — Strictly Business 11 Today, Forcht Bank has 24 banking centers across Kentucky and Cincinnati, Ohio, with more than 300 employees, and approximately $1 billion in total assets, which makes it one of the largest banking groups based in Kentucky. Despite its size now, Miller said that Forcht Bank works daily to focus on making sure its banking facilities still have that community bank feel for customers. “It’s in our training. It’s in our culture. Our banking team understands that’s how we set ourselves apart from the competition, and therefore understand the importance of Mike Sharpe, Regional Market President, and Corey Chesnut, Market President delivering that personalcustomers to do their banking on their schedule, ized experience.

or Liquor Mart Owner Paul Taylor, Corbin is home and the place where he grew up with his brother and co-owner, Jack Taylor. “I worked at Daniel’s department store. Me and my brother are both from Corbin. We are Corbin graduates and the TriCounty area has always been great to us,” Paul Taylor noted. “I remember when we were real young, our house burnt. The community – back then it was the optimist club – they came and picked us up and bought us clothes and all that. I always knew Corbin would be home to me. I always wanted it to be.” Paul Taylor first started working at a liquor store when he was in a fraternity at Eastern Kentucky University in Richmond. One of his fellow fraternity members came in and

said that someone didn’t show up for work at Ernie’s Liquor Store, and asked Taylor if he wanted to work. Taylor, who was majoring in law enforcement at the time, decided he wanted to try working there and he found that he liked the liquor store business. When he was 21 years old, he opened Taylor’s Liquor in Richmond, and nearly 30 years later, he is still in the liquor store business. When the Richmond Bypass went wet, Paul and Jack opened their first Liquor Mart and have been in the business ever since. At one time, they owned as many as seven stores, but currently Liquor Mart has five locations in Corbin, Lancaster, Danville, Georgetown and Nicholasville. Paul Taylor said that when other towns in Kentucky would go wet, he and his brother would look

Eric Gabbard, manager and Paul Taylor, owner at possibly opening a liquor store there, and when Corbin approved packaged alcohol sales in 2012, they decided to open a store here. Paul Taylor moved back to Corbin about one year ago, and is actively involved in the community serving on the site-based decision making council, he is a member of the varsity club, is a Corbin High School football booster, and is on the little league board. “I try to give back to the community now in any way I can help,” Paul Taylor said. “Anything I can do to help our community, like I said, it is home to me, and I love it here.” Paul Taylor said that the big thing his stores try to do is have great customer service. “We treat our customers with respect like you want to be treated,” he noted. If a customer likes a particular brand of wine or bourbon, then the store tries to get it for them. “We carry a great selection of liquor, beer, wine and scotch. I feel like for our square footage, we have a great variety. We are very good at putting the new items in when they become available,” he said. The business also works hard to keep their pricing very competitive. All employees are STAR (Server Training in Alcohol Regulations) trained.

“We don’t sell to minors,” Paul Taylor added. He said that the business supports social distancing, offers hand sanitizer, and employees are temperature checked when they come to work. If a customer comes in without a mask, then they are offered one. If the customer doesn’t want to wear a mask, then they are served through the drive-thru. “We try to make it a safe shopping experience for everyone. Our cleaning supply bill is crazy,” Paul Taylor noted adding the business tries to buy from local businesses whenever it can. His business doesn’t have a lot of employee turnover with one manager having worked there for 15 years and another manager having worked there for 10 years. “We always try to take care of our employees, as well as our customers,” Paul Taylor added. The Corbin store is located at 14659 N. US 25E in the Trademart Shopping Center in the old Dairy Queen location. The store is open Monday – Thursday from 9 a.m. – 11 p.m., Friday-Saturday from 9 a.m. – midnight, and Sunday from noon – 9 p.m. For more information call (606) 215-3560, visit the store’s website at, or its Facebook page at Liquor Mart of Corbin.
