The Cincinnati region saw impressive gains in job creation and business investment in just a 12 month span. Cincinnati USA businesses created 11,760 jobs, retained another 7,735 and spent $1.4B in new investments.
That's according to the Cincinnati USA Partnership for Economic Development's 2012 Growth Report. The report was compiled in conjunction with the Economic Center for Education and Research at the University of Cincinnati.
This year, the Partnership identified 141 announced economic development projects that added or retained jobs, added investment, or added square footage. In the report, those businesses are identified as Growth Companies.
"Now is the time for our region to be boldly celebratory about our growing economy and the companies that help propel our presence on a national and global scale," said Denyse Ferguson, Executive Director of the Cincinnati USA Partnership.
Additionally, Ferguson announced that four Growth Companies were recipients of 2013 Growth Awards: Mazak Corporation, dunnhumbyUSA, Emery Oleochemicals, and Paycor.
