The expansion at 7587 Ohio 219 will cover 57,460 square feet and is valued at $4,061,037, according to a building permit application filed last month. The expansion is for a “new manufacturing addition.”
The state of Ohio expects the project in Auglaize County expects to create 63 full-time positions by the year 2021, which will generate $2.5 million in new annual payroll.
Late last month, the Ohio Tax Credit Authority approved for the project a 1.309 percent tax credit for 6 years. The New Knoxville plant was one of two Crown facilities considered for the expansion, with the other site in Indiana.
