(Dublin, OH) Dublin City Council has approved an economic development agreement (EDA) with Kalmbach Feeds, Inc., a leader in animal food nutrition and feed manufacturing.
Established in 1963, Kalmbach Feeds is a family-owned and operated business with its main headquarters in Upper Sandusky, Ohio. Kalmbach Feeds utilizes cutting-edge technology and proprietary processes to deliver safe, innovative products with stringent ingredient testing, computer-automated systems, patented technologies, dedicated manufacturing facilities, and in-house nutrition specialists.
The project is expected to result in the creation of 18 new jobs in Dublin and will be Kalmbach’s first location within the city. These jobs will include marketing, finance and logistics roles. The Economic Development Agreement is a three-year payroll performance withholding incentive of up to $16,500.“Kalmbach Feeds is a leader in their industry and achieved that success while retaining a well-regarded commitment to customer service and community stewardship,” says Economic Development Administrator Jenna Goehring. “We’re excited to welcome them to our community and support their continued growth across the nation.”
The performance incentive is contingent upon Kalmbach Feeds providing documentation of an executed five-year lease of a facility within Dublin commencing by Oct. 31, 2023, and occupying the facility by Dec. 31, 2024. Should the company commit to a seven-year lease term, two additional years will be added to the payroll performance withholding incentive and the cap will be increased to $32,500. The City is also proposing an $8,000 location grant to offset moving and fit-up costs. The City anticipates collecting approximately $150,000 in net withholdings through 2028.
Council approved the EDA after a second reading at its meeting on Aug. 28, 2023.
