Looking Back at 2018

We have a simple, straightforward mission at the Dayton Development Coalition: To recruit, expand and retain jobs in the Dayton Region. When the year ends and we look back on our work, those three things show the growth of the region’s economic base. 

Crown Equipment Corporation’s Major Dayton Region Expansion Taking Shape

In October 2018, Crown Equipment Corporation announced plans for a new expansion. The $130 million expansion project will create 563 new jobs at multiple locations in the Dayton Region. Their expanded Ohio footprint will give the company additional assembly and manufacturing capacity, as well as expanded logistics capabilities, to fulfill the growing global demand for their product.
