Dayton Business Journal Profile Darke County's Economic Status

The Dayton Business Journal's latest "regional profile" piece spotlights Darke County's economy and the efforts being done to encourage growth and sustainability after weathering the recession.

The story heavily emphasizes the effort to position the county as a stronghold of manufacturing jobs, including the investments corporations like Midmark, Whirlpool, FRAM, and others have made to embolden their presence here, while also noting the large number of health care jobs held between Wayne Health Care, Brethren Retirement Community, and others.

Regarding challenges for our area, John Augustine, Chief Market Strategist for Fifth Third Bank is quoted in the piece as saying "One of the biggest challenges... is the non-development of skilled blue-collared labor, and that extends throughout this entire west-central region of the state."
