Three companies received approval this morning for state tax incentives that are expected to bring 149 jobs to central Ohio.
Logisitics company Genco I received approval for state tax credits for a project to expand into a new building near Rickenbacker Airport that is expected to create 82 jobs with an annual payroll of $3 million, according to the Ohio Tax Credit Authority, which approved the project.
Genco said it is expanding because it will be providing logistics services to a new customer.
Also receiving approval for tax credits is Ball Metal Food Container for an expansion project in Columbus that is expected to add 50 jobs with an annual payroll of $2.5 million. The project retains 146 jobs with an annual payroll of $10.8 million.
The company will invest $15 million in the project, which involves bringing new manufacturing lines to its operation in Columbus.
