Ohio Department of Development Director Lisa Patt-McDaniel says she’s disappointed to hear the Graco manufacturing plant in Macedonia plans to shut down and move overseas.
I want to assure you that we continue to be ready and willing to try and turn that around. We’ve already met with them a few times to try to make that point. The Governor, will again, be talking with their leadership to see if we can change that,” explains McDaniel.
The state reached out to Graco as soon as they heard the company wanted to leave. But McDaniel adds Graco needs hasn’t yet told them what specifically they need to “change their mind” and stay here
“We have financing, we have training programs, we have tax credits for jobs,” McDaniel says.
