TIPP CITY, Ohio (WDTN) – Tipp City is growing its employment base. Abbott opened a $200 million, 250,000 square foot facility in that Miami County city, expecting to add 240 jobs, a real boost to Ohio’s jobs bank.
The company will manufacture Ensure, a liquid nutritional food. It is one of six Abbott nutritional manufacturing facilities in the country.
Ohio Lt. Governor Mary Taylor attended the grand opening Wednesday and said, “Because of the partnership between Tipp City and Ohio, Abbott made the decision to build in Tipp City because of our policies that encourage businesses like Abbott to build and stay for a long time.”
Taylor says as she travels the state, she monitors the businesses that are functioning here and employing Ohioans. She encourages everyone to continue to support the industry that stays in the state.
