GREENVILLE – Partnering for Progress (P4P) an integral part of Darke County’s economic development. Approximately 100 persons were in attendance for a recent get together for P4P partners and potential investors.

Darke County Economic Development Director Marc Saluk marveled at the turnout. He credited those in attendance for the success the county has received over the last six years. He said, “Let me remind you what you have done. There are 100 entities and participants that have invested in P4P. It’s all hands on deck.” He alluded to the cross section of the community that takes part in P4P, including towns, realtors, factories, businesses and schools.

Saluk explained in the six years P4P has been assisting the county’s economic development efforts over 1,600 jobs of have been created, $120 million has been invested in capital expenditures which has resulted in an additional $50 million in annual payroll.  Out of 550 micropolitans across the country, Greenville has been ranked #17 for economic development by Site Selection Magazine.

Darke County is also experiencing success in workforce development. Next week, Greenville will unveil its Advanced Manufacturing Training Facility at Greenville High School. The facility is a combined effort by the State of Ohio, Greenville High School, local factories, Community Improvement Corporation, Edison State Community College and Darke County Economic Development. It was made possible through funding from the State of Ohio.

Workforce development is also working in local school districts. Last year the program celebrated Manufacturing Day by giving every sophomore in the county a tour of an area manufacturer and explaining the opportunities that are available.
