GREENVILLE - The Partnering for Progress (P4P) quarterly meeting held Friday at the Brethren Retirement Community highlighted the ongoing work of the initiative, as well as the business of the quarter, PolyOne, and outgoing president of the P4P Community Improvement Corporation board, Jim Poeppelman.

Marc Saluk, director of Darke County Economic Development, highlighted the Whirlpool expansion, the “largest single manufacturing project in Darke County for some time,” he said. He also touched on the success of hiring at PolyOne, where they’ve had a smooth hiring process, adding approximately 50 employees this year. This reflects positively on the training programs that have been implemented in the county over the last year, he noted.

Saluk also highlighted the upcoming $500,000 capital budget project at the Greenville Career-Tech Center, which will further benefit training of Darke County’s workforce in preparation of the addition of hundreds of jobs to the community.

Saluk began the introduction of the business of the quarter, PolyOne, which he slated as a sizable project, but one that’s been very good for Darke County’s workforce and citizens. Greenville’s Mayor Mike Bowers went on to talk about PolyOne’s corporate citizenship.

“We’re very fortunate for a very strong manufacturing base in our area,” Bowers stated. “…[PolyOne] has been very active these last couple of years.” Bowers went on to hale PolyOne as a “great corporate citizen.”

Following the presentation for business of the quarter, Jim Poeppelman was honored for his involvement in Partnering for Progress from the start, and was cited as a “big piece of getting us to where we are now,” by Marc Saluk. April 25 was proclaimed to be a Day of Appreciation for Jim Poeppelman by the Darke County Commissioners, as well.

Saluk added that there are six possible projects “in the pipeline” that could create nearly 140 additional jobs in Darke County....
