COLUMBUS—State Senator Bob Peterson (R-Washington Court House) applauds Candle-lite Company in expanding their southern Ohio manufacturing facility. This expansion means an addition of 64 employees and an investment of $3,297,480 in the new facility.
"I am incredibly happy to hear about the decision by Candle-lite to expand manufacturing in Leesburg," Peterson said. "The people of Highland County have proven themselves over the years as hard working individuals and I am pleased to see Candle-lite investing more into the community."
JobsOhio and Ohio SE supported the project and its employees with a $130,000 workforce development grant. This grant will help train employees in maintenance, product knowledge and quality and technical skills
