(Dublin, OH) – Dublin City Council will review two new proposed economic development agreements tonight that will retain more than 100 jobs in Dublin and the Columbus region.
Dublin-based Hull & Associates, Inc. seeks to expand its current operations located at 6397 Blazer Parkway. Hull plans to retain 73 jobs and create an additional six jobs by the end of 2018. The company will be expanding into currently unused space in their existing location.
Hull is a project development, energy, and engineering consulting firm specializing in the alternative energy, brownfields, environmental, shale oil & gas, and waste management markets.
Dublin Economic Development Administrator Michael Clarey said the economic development agreement proposed by the City includes a four-year, 10% Performance Incentive on withholdings collected (2015-2018), which is capped at $40,500 for the term of the agreement.
Goken America, LLC, a design/engineering firm serving the automotive industry, is seeking to expand its footprint in Dublin. Currently located at 5920 Wilcox Place, Goken plans to retain 29 jobs and create an additional 20 jobs by the end of 2019. Goken will relocate the company to a larger site at 5100 Parkcenter Ave.
Clarey says the economic development agreement proposed by the City includes a one-time $10,000 Location Grant and a five-year, 10% Performance Incentive on withholdings collected (2015-2019), which is capped at $60,000 for the term of the agreement.
“Hull & Associates and Goken’s desire to expand their operations here demonstrates the value of doing business in Dublin and their long-term commitment to Dublin,” said Economic Development Administrator Michael Clarey.
Council will vote on both economic development agreements at the second reading on August 25.
