New jobs for Logan, maybe
(WOUB) - The City of Logan is coming close to landing a company that will create about 100 new jobs.

The Hocking County Community Improvement Corporation purchased the vacant Seilkirk Metalbestos
manufacturing facility three years ago and now the S and G Manufacturing Group is interested in buying it.

The company is based in Hilliard and is looking to expand its operations.

S and G Manufactures stainless steel restaurant equipment, custom wood fabricated items, and small wares for the restaurant industry.

Local economic development official Bill Rinehart says negotiations with S and G have been going on for the past nine to ten months.

He's optimistic a deal can be done.

In an effort to help, the state is offering a $50,000 grant to S and G.

The Ohio Department of Development says Ohio is in competition with Mississippi for the $450,000 project.
