At its April meeting, the Port Authority Board of Directors approved the Port using its lease structure to assist in the development of a new 182,000 square foot facility for Nehemiah Manufacturing on a 7.7-acre site in Lower Price Hill. The Port’s financing is a portion of the overall incentives and assistance provided to the growing manufacturer by the City of Cincinnati, REDI Cincinnati and others. Nehemiah employs people with criminal records or histories of drug abuse. REDI Cincinnati recently awarded Nehemiah the James A. Wuenker Growth Award at their annual meeting.
“Nehemiah’s growth and success is a great story, and this financing also grew out of our partnerships with REDI and JobsOhio.”
