(WOUB) - The State of Ohio is providing financial assistance to help bring jobs to Monroe County.

The funds are for the Artco Group...which is making plans to purchase and renovate the closed Ormet Corporation rolling mill...to produce thick plate steel.

Artco will also receive a low interest loan of two-point-five million dollars.

The expected total cost for the project is eight-point-five million dollars.

It's supposed to create 45 new jobs within three years.
