This $2,214,000 project will support the retention of 122 existing jobs and the creation of approximately 22 new jobs within three years. ED/GE funds will offset the cost of construction.
City of Vandalia – Project Triplet - $200,000 Project Triplet will retain a high performance injection molding manufacturer in a new building in the Northwoods Boulevard area. Over a multi-phase undertaking, the project will include land acquisition, new construction, new equipment and relocation costs for the company to consolidate two existing locations. An additional 60 jobs will be created over the next four years and 265 jobs retained. ED/GE dollars will be applied toward the acquisition costs for the land.
City of Brookville – Provimi North America Expansion - $250,000 Provimi North America will construct an 11,200 square foot addition to its corporate headquarters in the NorthBrook Industrial Park in order to relocate their nutritionists and technical and commercial professionals from Preble County. The project will provide an ingress and egress for the expansion which will bring 42 new employees to Brookville. ED/GE funding will be partnered with City of Brookville monies to construct the new roadway and infrastructure for the project.
City of Dayton – American Heat Treating - $50,000 The company will purchase its facility on Morris Avenue and ED/GE dollars will be used to offset the cost of capital improvements at the site. The company will retain 20 existing jobs and create three additional jobs over the next three years.
City of West Carrollton – Dayton Progress - $54,250 Dayton Progress needs to reallocate space within its existing manufacturing space to allow for the relocation of a coolant recycle system and provide raw material storage space. This reallocation will provide work space for the hiring of an additional 50 full-time employees within the next twelve months. The project consists of the construction of a 3,600 sq. ft. building that will house the coolant recycle system. ED/GE funds are the financial bridge that makes the relocation of jobs from North Carolina and Michigan to West Carrollton cost competitive.
City of Dayton/Miami Township/Washington Township – Crown Partners – 7% of total project, up to $200,000, at chosen location The project consists of the purchase and renovation of a yet-to-be-identified building in either Dayton, Miami Township or Washington Township to serve as the corporate headquarters for Crown Partners.
