J&B Medical said the regional collaboration of economic development partners in working closely with the company helped move the project forward in an efficient manner.

The company will receive JobsOhio Talent Acquisition Services which, through a tailored approach, will help J&B Medical attract talent for open positions with such services as talent advising, candidate marketing and pre-screening.
