General Fasteners Eyes Ross County, Ohio For Distribution Hub
According to state economic development officials, the company is located in the recently completed Nier Spec Building on River Road. Ross County’s highway access and the building’s proximity to US-23 and US-35 are significant advantages for the company.
“We are very excited about the opening of our new location,” said Jim Scott, New Business Development Manager. “The Heavy Truck industry is a very important segment of our business, and crucial to the American economy. The General Fasteners Company is very proud to be supporting production at the PACCAR Kenworth plant in Chillicothe, Ohio.”
General Fasteners, headquartered in Michigan, began operations in 1952. JobsOhio and OhioSE worked closely with the company, which will receive a $25,000 JobsOhio Economic Development Grant to locate in Ross County. The Joint Economic Development Initiative of Southern Ohio was also involved and is supporting the project.
“Ross County has a number of assets, including great highway access and a skilled workforce that General Fasteners will benefit from,” said Taylor Stepp, OhioSE Project Manager. “We and our partners at JobsOhio worked alongside General Fasteners to provide them a spec building that met the company’s growth needs.”
“General Fasteners is a well-established company with a history of providing quality fasteners and inventory management services to their customers. It is a pleasure to welcome them to our community and we look forward to their success and sustained growth as a Ross County business,” commented Tammy Eallonardo, Greater Chilliothe & Ross County Development Executive Director.
