Site Selection Finds Ohio No. 2 – for Corporate Investment

Columbus Business First

The Columbus region, and Ohio as a whole, are being recognized among the country’s top locations for corporate investment.  Site Selection magazine has released its closely watched annual report tracking new and expanded business facilities, ranking the Columbus region No. 8 among metro areas, and Ohio No. 2 among states.
It's the fifth year in a row that Columbus made the top 10, based on the number of corporate projects in 2016.  “The Columbus region’s continued presence on this list is a testament to the hard work that our community does to grow and attract companies,” Kenny McDonald, president and chief economic officer of Columbus 2020, said in a press release.
Site Selection counted 87 projects in Central Ohio that met one of the list’s three criteria: Involves a capital investment of at least $1 million, creates at least 20 new jobs, or adds at least 20,000 square feet of new floor area.  Among Ohio metros, greater Cincinnati fared better with 127 such projects.
