International Cushioning Company Selects Fremont, Ohio for Manufacturing Plant
ICC will occupy the former Fremont Plastics Building located at 2101 Cedar Street.
“We are very excited to be expanding our business into the Midwest to continue to support our current customers and grow our business.” says Terry Nielsen, Vice President of ICC. “This new location allows us to continue to build the foundation for future expansion of the business. Our long-term plans include adding additional products and employees to the organization over the next couple of years.” Buddy Bussey, President and Owner of the business continued: “We believe that Fremont has presented us with a very business friendly environment and a true partner in helping us make the new operation a success.”
The Sandusky County Economic Development Corporation along with the City of Fremont partnered with the Regional Growth Partnership and JobsOhio in bringing this project together. The team worked closely in the site selection process as well as putting together a competitive incentive package for ICC.
“The attraction of International Cushioning brings 75 jobs and new manufacturing operations to Northwest Ohio,” said J.P. Nauseef, JobsOhio president and CEO. “International Cushioning’s decision to invest in Fremont is an example of collaborative efforts with the RGP and local partners to create new opportunities that lead to a strong economic recovery in Ohio.”According to Sandusky County Economic Development Corporation, this was a competitive site search process for ICC with locations in other Midwest locations also being considered.
The location of their new facility fits into the proximity of markets that they serve in Michigan and Wisconsin, as well as their customers located here in Ohio. This strategic location will help them serve their existing customer base more effectively and continue to grow their business geographically.
“It has been wonderful working with Buddy, Terry, Kirstin and the rest of the team at ICC over the past few months. ICC’s decision to choose Fremont and Sandusky County for its new manufacturing facility shows economic growth and stability within our region” stated Beth Hannam, Executive Director of the Sandusky County Economic Development Corporation. “We are looking forward to continuing a strong relationship with ICC and wish them great success at their new facility!”
