TTM Technologies has announced plans to grow their North Jackson location adding 50 new jobs and retaining 200 current ones.

According to a press release, the Ohio Department of Development (ODOD) approved the project for tax credit assistance during its Ohio Tax Credit Authority meeting on Monday.

This investment will help produce essential components for many industries that have a large presence in the Valley including aerospace, automotive, medical devices and industrial controls and automation.

In addition to the new jobs, this would also generate more than $2.2 million in annual payroll.

"TTM Technologies is pleased to bring this expansion of capability and opportunity for workforce growth to North Jackson, Ohio. The engagement by Team NEO, the Ohio Department of Development and JobsOhio to understand our extensive workforce training requirements was invaluable in our decision to grow this facility," said TTM Technologies Chief Operating Officer Phil Titterton.

Titterton went on to say the process has allowed all involved to develop a better understanding of the importance and criticality of American-made printed circuit boards (PCBs).

TTM Technologies is a global manufacturer of technology solutions including mission systems, RF components, quick-turn and technologically advanced PCBs.
