SIDNEY — Nearly 200 jobs are coming to Shelby County.

P&THE Manufacturing, LLC, the new owner of Ross Aluminum, is investing $5.4 million into operations in Sidney and creating 175 jobs, the Dayton Development Coalition (DDC) announced Thursday.

P&THE, a MBE holding company, purchased the assets of USAC Ross, LLC, an aluminum foundry, in April.

In January, Ross announced the Sidney facilities would close in March. The acquisition meant that the facility would remain open.

Pancho Hall, CEO and Chairman of P&THE, called Ross Aluminum a “strong addition” to the company’s manufacturing portfolio.

Ross has been supplying aluminum castings to a wide range of industries, such as aerospace and power generation industry, since 1931, according to the DDC.

“The expansion and revitalization of the Ross plant brings 175 jobs and the newest aluminum casting technology to keep this staple of the region growing and competitive in the global marketplace with talent from Ohio,” J.P. Nauseef, JobsOhio president and CEO said.
