Columbus - 
Today, State Senator Bill Beagle (R - Tipp City) applauded the Ohio Controlling Board's release of over $1.4 million dollars to two Montgomery County entities. Behr Dayton Thermal Products LLC is set to receive $186,000 to assist in their massive upgrade and expansion campaign, while the Edison Materials Technology Center (EMTEC) will draw on a $1.25 million award in order to continue its networking efforts with Ohio's manufacturing community. Located in Dayton, Behr Dayton Thermal specializes in automotive air conditioning and engine cooling systems. The $186,000 in funding for Behr is in addition to a $12.3 million investment that the company is making to purchase new machinery and equipment and to improve its infrastructure. In addition, 900 existing full-time jobs will be retained by the employer. EMTEC, a non-profit, member-based organization aimed at developing business and technology strategies throughout Ohio, is set to expand their current partnerships and grow their involvement with national and international organizations. EMTEC is required to provide a dollar-to-dollar match of the state's $1.25 million investment. "It's become clear that the folks in Columbus know that Southwest Ohio can be the engine to move our entire state forward," Beagle said. "Investments like these are more than temporary economic boosters. Instead, they provide the vital tools in repairing our economy and growing new, relevant jobs for our citizens." Prior to receiving approval from the Ohio Controlling Board, these four funding projects garnered endorsement on behalf of the Development Financing Advisory Council (DFAC).
Senator Bill Beagle serves the people of Ohio's 5th Senate District, which includes Miami County and portions of Montgomery and Darke Counties.
