Solar project to add 82 jobs to Dayton company
Assembly & Test Worldwide Inc. plans to hire more than 80 people to produce machines meant to make solar panel glass more efficient.
In the last three months, the 313 Mound St. [Dayton, Ohio] company has received grants from Dayton and state governments for what the company says will be a $1.4 million investment.
Although the state said the project is expected to create 82 positions and retain 199, Eugene Haffely, the company’s chief operating officer, said the project actually will help retain 135 jobs — the number of people the company employs locally. The expansion will not add floor space, according to a Feb. 10 Dayton Daily News report.
