FOSTORIA – Two recent project announcements in northwest Ohio are expected to create 120 new jobs with more than $4 million of capital investment, according to Regional Growth Partnership (RGP), Toledo.

One of the projects involves Alex Products, a Tier I and Tier II automotive supplier. The company has announced a $2.15 million expansion and the creation of 100 new jobs. The expansion includes the three plants in northwest Ohio located at Paulding, Ridgeville Corners and Bryan.

Alex Products manufactures automotive seat frames, tooling and automation equipment.

Collaboration between the RGP, JobsOhio and the Henry County Improvement Corporation helped in this project. The company received a Jobs Creation tax credit and a JobsOhio grant.
