The governor celebrates a Morgan County success story.
Austrian manufacturer Miba already has a bearings plant just outside McConnelsville.
Thursday, it formally opened an expansion of that complex.
Miba Industries has grown since it signed a long-term lease for its locomotive bearings plant there nearly ten years ago.
And Thursday, the governor celebrated the addition of a plant where automobile parts are made.
Kasich, who faces re-election this year, took the opportunity to promote his "Jobs Ohio" board.
It helped provide a $2 million plant construction loan, and a $50,000 job training grant.
And he says the jobs created may be just the beginning.
"That will be initially, 110 jobs. I'll bet if we can keep providing a good work force, they'll even be creating more jobs," he says. "They're clearly committed to this area. You don't make this kind of investment unless you figure on staying for a very long time."
425 people work at the two Miba manufacturing sites.
And the board chairman of the Austrian-based company says it plans a $4 million investment at the Sinter plant, which could result in a hundred more jobs.
Although the ribbon cutting was Thursday there has been production at the Miba plant's Sinter division for the past four years.
