Clark County receives FTZ designation

I received exciting news this morning from Angie Atwood at the Columbus Regional Airport Authority for Clark County and all its businesses.  I will be doing a couple of posts on the benefits of a Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) and how it can help businesses save money and time.  We will also look to set up an event for our business community.

Good Monday morning,

On Friday the FTZ Board approved our Alternative Site Framework application!  Your county is now part of FTZ 138’s service area.  This means that any company in your county can receive FTZ designation within 30 days.

Now we would like to get the word out by making presentations in your area.  This could be a meeting set up for invited area companies either by individual county or multiple counties could team up.  We would also welcome making presentations to groups like the chamber, port authority, rotary, etc.  I will defer to you as the expert in your county about how best to proceed.

CRAA is here to support your economic development efforts by making the FTZ available as another tool to retain and attract businesses.

I look forward to working with you to bring the zone to companies in your county.
