Certainly these are trying days for some parts of the economy but don’t let the headlines fool you — there’s plenty of successful business ventures going on all around us. Quietly some of Kent’s biggest businesses have been posting record setting sales and production numbers and now we’re gaining a new business whose growth has has been so fast they need to expand in a hurry and they picked Kent as the best place to do for that to happen. Welcome to Kent DipTechSystems Incorporated!
Our Economic Development Director has been busy and I’m pleased to report he’s producing results. First as the new guy on staff he was responsible for arranging the weather for the Heritage Festival and he pulled that off with flying colors but more importantly after a visit to Dip Tech Inc. down in the Tallmadge area he suggested to the company President, Tom Doland, that Kent was the best place for him to expand his business.
Apparently Dan was pretty convincing because Dip Tech has announced that it has now acquired property in Kent and was preparing to expand the building to accommodate 12 to 20 corporate staff and engineering jobs that it was moving to the new building.
Dan reports that the property is at 184 Currie Hall and they are slated to begin the renovation work immediately. You can read more about this 75 year old company that is currently experiencing significant growth from their web site: http://www.diptechsystems.com/
I thought you’d want to hear the good news. Great work Dan.
