Columbus – Today, JobsOhio President and Chief Executive officer J.P. Nauseef issued the following statement regarding JobsOhio executing agreements with The Sherwin-Williams Company to assist its plans for a new global headquarters in downtown Cleveland and a new R&D center in Brecksville.
“Sherwin-Williams has played a critical role in Cleveland’s growth and its community for more than 154 years while having an incredibly positive economic impact for the entire state. This project will spur thousands of additional construction jobs, create millions in new annual revenue for the communities and local school districts, and be a catalyst for additional development in both Cleveland and Brecksville.
“Working side-by-side with partners from the local to the state level was essential to ensuring Sherwin-Williams would continue its success and innovation here in Ohio. While assistance for this project has been months in the making, the initial economic impact of Sherwin-Williams’ new global headquarters and R&D center can come at a time when Ohioans are seeking needed opportunities while ensuring a proven job creator stays here in Ohio where it belongs.”
