Technology firm moving to Dublin

In what is becoming a regular occurrence, another company has announced plans to move to Dublin.

Officials from Automation and Control Technology Inc., a Columbus-based tech firm, have agreed to an economic incentive offer from Dublin to move its offices to 6141 Avery Road, the former home of CC Technologies.

Dublin officials expect the deal to net about $680,000 during the next decade.

Officials from ACT told Dublin they have to move their offices because their current offices – inside the ABB building near Ohio State University – are being sold to Ohio State

Dublin City Council is expected to approve the deal at its Jan. 18 meeting.

“I’m glad to see our economic-development office aggressively going after this kind of business,” said Mayor Marilee Chinnici-Zuercher.

The deal brings 28 jobs to Dublin this year and the company plans to have 78 employees by 2013.

“This is an exciting opportunity for us,” said City Manger Jane Brautigam. “We feel they’re making a permanent commitment to our community.”

ACT estimates its payroll at about $2.1 million per year and will grow to $7.5 million annually by 2013.

The deal will give a $70,000 relocation grant to ACT from Dublin and offer 10-percent tax rebates to the firm if it meets or exceeds certain payroll targets.

The Avery site to which ACT will move opened after officials from CC Technologies worked a deal with Dublin to move into new local offices.
