Testimonial:

“The JobsOhio, OhioSE and Scioto County Economic Development office staff are clearly committed to creating an advantaged Ohio state through their tireless efforts to promote and support industry.” – Timothy Albert, vice president of manufacturing, ALTIVIA 

Why Ohio?

ALTIVIA’s expansion will be its second at the facility since 2015 and will include several on-site infrastructure improvements. ALTIVIA utilizes three of southern Ohio’s best assets to transport its raw materials and products: the Ohio River, rail and highway access. ALTIVIA believes the Haverhill facility is geographically and strategically located to best meet its key markets and promote business growth.

Ohio is a well-established base for companies moving goods around the globe, with a desirable location that’s a one-day drive from more than 60% of the U.S. and Canadian populations. Cities across the U.S. and globe are easily accessible via Ohio’s multimodal transportation infrastructure, recognized as one of the best in the U.S.

JobsOhio and OhioSE offered ALTIVIA a JobsOhio Economic Development Grant for its most recent facility upgrades.
