MILLBURY - An electronics assembly plant is building a new facility in Lake Township.
David Levison, owner of EPI Global, said he hopes to break ground in four to six weeks on a 14,000-square-foot building near Toledo Executive Airport.
At its Feb. 20 meeting, the Lake Board of Education approved an enterprise zone agreement between the township and Levison Holding LCC, doing business as EPI Global. This pays Lake School District $11,000 per year annually for 10 years of tax abatement.
As part of the agreement, the school district waives the right to scheduled hearings of the Lake Township Trustees and Wood County Commissioners.
The trustees will vote on the tax abatement at their March 5 meeting, said Trustee Richard Welling.
Levison, in a phone interview on Thursday, said EPI Global's new building will be just east of Nagle Trucking, which is at 4520 Moline-Martin Road.
EPI Global has 15 employees but could add more with the expansion, Levison said.
The company has been down the road at 4400 Moline-Martin Road since 2008. When looking to expand, Levison wanted to stay in the township.
"The majority of my employees are from around here and it was convenient for them. It's a decent place to have a business," he said.
According to its Web site, EPI Global is a multi-faceted, design-to-contract manufacturer and "build to print" shop. They serve the medical, military, aviation, nuclear, food and alternative energies industries.
Welling said that the information sent to the trustees indicated EPI Global would be hiring at least two more full-time employees. He said there should be "no issues" with the trustees approving the tax abatement.
EPI Global is not part of a Joint Economic Development District with Toledo that was completed in early 2010 with the township. Welling said the company did not want to be in it.
The township and Toledo have a JEDD agreement for property around the airport, near Cummings Road and Ohio 795. A JEDD allows a township to join with a municipality to trade tax revenues for infrastructure or services. Officials hope the property attracts businesses and high-paying jobs to the area. Welling said no businesses have located there yet.
