Companies from around the world view investing in the U.S. as a critical part of their business growth. After weighing options, many of these companies choose an Ohio location over other states. Modula, an Italy-based business with over 30 years of experience as a leading manufacturer of automated storage solutions, is one of them.
In 2015, Modula became the first manufacturer of vertical lift modules in North America with an investment in Lewiston, Maine. In 2019, Modula announced that it would invest $26.5 million to build its second U.S. manufacturing facility in Franklin, Ohio.
As part of the SelectUSA Investment Summit, an international event in Washington D.C. that attracts businesses from around the world, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine and JobsOhio President and CEO J.P. Nauseef virtually interviewed Antonio Pagano, CEO of Modula Incorporated, Modula’s U.S. manufacturing branch. Their discussion centers around about why Ohio’s culture and logistics assets benefit Modula, how partnerships in Ohio supported the investment, and why other companies should consider investing in the state.
