— A West Carrollton company is planning to move about 110 jobs to West Dayton when it renovates a large manufacturing facility, according to city of Dayton documents.
The Dayton City Commission on Wednesday will decide whether to approve providing $300,000 to Production Design Services Inc. (PDSI) in support of a nearly $4.2 million project to relocate and expand its business.
PDSI has an office at 401 Fame Road in West Carrollton, but is looking to move into 313 Mound St., which is located in the Five Points neighborhood, near West Fifth Street.
PDSI provides products and services to automotive companies, including robotic welding and precision machines.
The city is looking at giving PDSI an ED/GE grant worth $100,000 and $200,000 from the West Dayton Development Fund.
In exchange for the funding, PDSI pledges to relocate 80 existing jobs to Dayton and create 30 additional ones over the next three years that have an average salary of $42,000, according to an economic development agreement that city commissioners will vote on Wednesday.
West Dayton has had some good news on the economic development and jobs front this year.
An investment firm committed to spending about $1.5 million to rehab the empty McCall’s printing facility, which it said could create 100 or more new jobs. .
