A Highland County area manufacturing company has announced its intention to create 80 new jobs and invest in retooling and software to meet increased demand from customers.
Seal-Tite, a Hillsboro-based galvanized steel air distribution system manufacturer, is partnering with OhioSE, JobsOhio and Highland County for the new expansion.
“Seal-Tite is proud to partner with OhioSE, JobsOhio and Highland County for our new expansion,” said Laura Burton, Business Controller at Seal-Tite. “Assistance from JobsOhio will help us invest in our facility and will allow our company to meet the needs of our customers.”
In addition to an investment from Seal-Tite, JobsOhio is assisting the project with a $100-thousand Economic Development Grant for investment in new software to improve productivity.
“JobsOhio and OhioSE are thrilled that Seal-Tite is making this investment in Highland County and continuing its century-long commitment to product quality, superior customer experiences, and a dedication to excellence,” said Mike Jacoby, OhioSE president.
“Seal-Tite’s investment in its future in Highland County cements its long-standing commitment to our area and our residents,” said Julie Bolender, Director of Highland County Economic Development. “We look forward to helping them develop their current workforce and the 80 new additional employees they will soon hire. Seal-Tite’s commitment to growth is another reason Highland County is a great place to live and work.”
Seal-Tite is headquartered on Moore Road in Hillsboro and its roots trace back to the beginning of the 20th Century when it started as a sheet metal shop in Cincinnati.
