Business Retention & Expansion

Business Retention & Expansion

Gallia County’s Business Retention and Expansion (BRE) program focuses solely on the retention and expansion of existing companies in Gallia County.

Through our Business Retention and Expansion activities, we seek to demonstrate our support of local companies with periodic visits for candid discussion regarding the opportunities and challenges that exist operating a business in Gallia County.  As a result, we work to provide assistance to help solve business concerns, improve the local business climate,  provide connections to available resources, and identify opportunities for growth. Gallia County Economic Development partners with state, regional, and local economic development organizations to provide an array of resources to encourage companies to stay and expand in Gallia County.

As a result of a BRE visit in 2018, GKN Sinter Metals was able to secure training funds to improve the skills of their employees:

“The Incumbent Worker Training Funding will help make available training that will further develop our already highly skilled workforce and ensure timely delivery of a quality product to our customers. This training helps make GKN more competitive in the automotive marketplace which ultimately helps to secure jobs and industry in Gallia County”
