PADUCAH, Ky. (AP) -- A manufacturer of sealants and adhesives is expanding in Paducah.

H.B. Fuller Co. is planning to add a new line of equipment to its specialty adhesive producing facility.

A statement from Gov. Steve Beshear says the expansion amounts to 11 new jobs and an $825,000 investment.

The company, founded in 1887, was approved for tax benefits up to $220,000 through the Kentucky Business Investment program over 10 years.

The company's products are used to create hundreds of brand name goods, including glue, the adhesive in a disposable diaper and the seal that keeps a refrigerator airtight.
