Grandview Heights and Dublin Are Big Winners as International Chemical Company Picks Ohio
In a boost to the Columbus Region, INEOS Enterprises, a global chemical company and division of INEOS Group, has chosen to make the Columbus Region the home of their North American headquarters. INEOS Enterprises plans to move operations from Baltimore, Wichita, and Houston to a new site in GrandviewHeights. Additionally, INEOS Enterprises will continue to operate their lab in Dublin, while investing in a new location in Dublin.
The $24.5 million investment will create a 65,500 square foot laboratory in Dublin and develop another location in Grandview Heights for office administration, creating 50 new jobs. INEOS Enterprises is a global market leader in the production of intermediary chemicals. The company has a diverse portfolio of chemical products that are used as an essential input into chemical value chains across a broad variety of end markets and sectors, such as paints, coatings, composites, construction, automotive, packaging, and medical devices. Through a portfolio of a number of discrete business units, INEOS Enterprises serves these sectors with an extensive manufacturing presence in North America, Europe, and China.
“As the global economy evolves, so does INEOS Enterprises,” said Andrew Beer, Senior Vice President, Americas at INEOS Composites. “By far, the Columbus Region made the most sense as we consolidated our North American headquarters operations for this business. At the same time, growing demand and need for technical solutions is driving our investment in a new laboratory in Dublin that will strengthen our capabilities to better serve our customers.”
Hiring for both new facilities will begin July 2023. The Grandview location will utilize the currently vacant space at 955 Yard Street.
“This is very exciting news for Grandview Heights,” said Greta Kearns, Mayor of Grandview Heights. “We’ve made a concerted effort to be a community where businesses desire to be located and are fortunate to have the high-quality office space to attract them. To have a company of INEOS Enterprises caliber choosing Grandview Heights as their North American headquarters speaks volumes and we are thrilled to welcome them.”
The new facility in Dublin will be located at 6777 Crosby Street. It will integrate capabilities shifting from the INEOS Pigments lab in Baltimore, Maryland. “Increasing their lab footprint demonstrates INEOS Enterprises’ continued investment in Dublin,” said City of Dublin City Manager Megan O’Callaghan. “We’re a city where diverse businesses want to grow and thrive in the global economy and we’re excited to continue supporting INEOS Enterprises and their work in our community.”
“A globally successful chemical company choosing Grandview and Dublin as the home North American office and research operations speaks to the value Ohio provides businesses worldwide and the incredible collaboration they find here before choosing the best location to invest,” said J.P. Nauseef, President and CEO of JobsOhio. “Filling vacant office space has become a nationwide challenge in the post-Covid economy, so the decision by INEOS Enterprises to make the Columbus Region their North American headquarters says a lot about what Ohio has to offer.”
