The Ohio State Building and Construction Trades Council congratulates Governor Mike DeWine, his administration and Jobs Ohio for their months of hard work which resulted in today’s announcement from Intel that it will invest $20 billion to build two computer chip plants in Licking County – the largest single private sector investment in Ohio history. The Ohio State Building Trades’ skilled craftspeople have the training and experience required to construct and maintain these state-of-the-art facilities
and we are excited about the opportunity to partner with Intel and the state of Ohio bring this project to fruition.

Ohio has a strong history of building and manufacturing and this announcement proves that our great state continues to be an excellent place do business. Our central location, educational institutions, natural resources, great business climate, and, of course, our outstanding workforce make this an ideal location for Intel and the many related businesses which are sure to spin off from this project.

This is also an exciting opportunity for our apprenticeship programs across the state to train the workers who will build and maintain this facility for generations to come. The building trades’ world class apprenticeship programs provide the high level of training required to make Ohio the new frontier in high technology.
