Ohio Fares Well in Site Selection’s 2015 “Governors Cup”


Texas and Kentucky have again won Site Selection magazine’s Governors Cups for attracting new facilities in 2015 – Texas for total qualifying projects and Kentucky for total projects per capita. Ohio claimed second place for total projects (517) and third when measured by projects per capita. Ohio was second in both dimensions in 2014. The Governors Cups reflect yearly project totals as tracked by the Conway Projects Database. Qualifying projects must meet one or more of these criteria for inclusion in the database: a minimum capital investment of $1 million, 20 or more new jobs created, and 20,000 or more square feet of new space.
