HAMILTON, Ohio, March 26 /PRNewswire/ -- The Butler County Board of Commissioners reported today that 3,116 new jobs were created in the County during 2006 bringing the total number of new jobs created during the 2004 - 2006 period to 9,375.

"This has been a remarkable run for Butler County in job creation," said Commission president Greg Jolivette. "It's important to also note that during the same three year period we were able to retain almost 9,000 jobs by listening to existing Butler County businesses and responding to their needs."

 
More than $1.5 billion in new investment sparked job creation in Butler County. Year-by-year job creation, job retention, and investment numbers for the County are as follows:

Jobs Jobs New Year Created Retained Investment 2006 3,116 1,431 $559,103,344 2005 3,144 1,322 $651,762,890 2004 3,115 6,123 $365,122,309 Total 9,375 8,876 $1,575,988,543 Source: Cincinnati USA Partnership

"When new and existing businesses pump more than a billion and a half dollars of new investment into Butler County, it is definitely a vote of confidence for the business climate here," said Commissioner Chuck Furmon. "I don't know of a better validation than companies voting with their wallets."

Investment in distribution and logistics, manufacturing, healthcare, and office buildings again led growth in Butler County.

"We continue to experience good, steady growth patterns in Butler County," said Commission vice president Mike Fox. "When growth in one sector dips temporarily, we have a spurt in another. Manufacturing growth was down a little this year, but led growth in both 2002 and 2003. Healthcare was kind of quiet back then but has been extremely strong in 2005 and 2006," he said.

Butler County Ohio, located between the Cincinnati and Dayton metro areas in southwest Ohio, is at the center of a population and market of 2.8 million people. Butler County has business-oriented government officials; an excellent availability of reasonably priced office, commercial, and industrial space; a productive, knowledge-based workforce; close proximity to interstates I-75, I-71, I-74, and I-70; affordable Midwest housing; and world-class air service from two international airports making it an unsurpassed community in which to conduct business.
