“Attracting a new company into the region takes a team effort,” said Dave Stratton, AEDG President/CEO. “One of the roles of Allen Economic Development Group is to unite leaders from all facets of the project — township, city, school district, Ohio Means Jobs and Regional Growth Partnership — to bring the best opportunity to the company. We are excited that we have a home for Logoplaste in our Gateway Industrial Park. This international company will be a terrific complement to the manufacturing environment in Allen County.”
Other key partners in the local process included Allen County and its Ohio Means Jobs office, the Port Authority of Allen County, the city of Lima, Perry Township and the Perry Local School District.
The Regional Growth Partnership worked closely with JobsOhio in managing the incentive process which procured a grant through JobsOhio for new machinery and equipment.
“Logoplaste’s new manufacturing facility will bring 50 jobs and more international investment to Ohio,” said J.P. Nauseef, JobsOhio President and CEO. “This investment demonstrates Logoplaste’s confidence in Lima’s workers, who will play an essential role in growing the company and Ohio’s economy.”
