“This company has deep roots in Northwest Ohio and the productivity of our workforce has allowed us to continue growing and find great success,” said Doug Wenninger, president and CEO, Alliance Automation.

Alliance Automation is made up of professionals who are experts in designing and building robotic automation systems that optimize the manufacturing processes and help companies increase throughput, Wenninger noted, adding its team of innovative thinkers, designers and builders provide solutions for business, helping to upgrade efficiency and guarantee reliability in production.

As an incentive JobsOhio plans to provide assistance to the project which will be made public after the final agreement has been executed.

Our advanced manufacturing industry across Northwest Ohio has been nationally ranked among the most productive, and it’s because of innovative companies like Alliance Automation,” said Dean Monske, president and CEO of the Regional Growth Partnership. “On behalf of JobsOhio, we congratulate and welcome their planned investment.”
