OAK HILL, Ohio — OTR tire retreader H&H Industries Inc. — in collaboration with Ohio state and regional economic development authorities — is expanding production capacity at its Oak Hill plant with a $275,000 investment.
The investment in a higher capacity peeler/buffer will expand the company's existing capacity for larger-sized OTR tire while increasing efficiency and productivity, while creating five new jobs, H&H Industries President Noah Hickman said.
The investment, being carried out with assistance from JobsOhio, Ohio Southeast Economic Development (OhioSE), and the Jackson County Economic Development Partnership (JCEDP), will create five new jobs at the company, which is marking its 50th year in business in 2022.
"H&H Industries' commitment has always been to reinvest in our business thereby allowing us to expand operations and give us the ability to create more jobs for our local residents which has always been a priority to us," Hickman said.
"Southern Ohio has been a key factor in our success and the support we get from local communities and Jackson County, in general, has always been appreciated."
