State Senator Dave Burke (R-Marysville) announced today that Scotts Miracle-Gro plans to create 60 new jobs at its Marysville facility.

"The grass continues to grow greener in the 26th Senate District," said Burke. "As companies continue to invest in leading technology and high-paying jobs, I applaud Scott’s commitment to the area and look forward to working with their growing company in the future." 

The announcement follows the approval of a $1 million research and development loan during a meeting of the Ohio Controlling Board on Monday.

Financing for the project will involve retrofitting the final section of the 1.4 million square-foot Scotts facility. The retrofitting project will allow the company to continue research and development around the commercialization of slow release nitrogen technology. 

The company currently employs 1,045 workers at its Marysville facility. 

Scotts Miracle-Gro Company is the leading manufacturer and marketer of branded consumer lawn and garden products. Scotts has been part of the Marysville community since O.M. Scott founded his company in Marysville in 1868.
