COLUMBUS – As the place where business begins in Ohio, Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted’s office has launched the “Ohio Business Profile” to raise awareness about Ohio companies that are creating interesting products, offering outstanding service, contributing to their local communities and employing Ohioans in the process.

The Business Services Division of the Ohio Secretary of State’s office is where companies incorporate and file to do business in Ohio. In addition to working to make every interaction with Ohio employers as straightforward and hassle free as possible, the Secretary believes that in the current economic climate, highlighting the good things going on in Ohio’s business environment is critical.

“Ohioans will be both surprised and proud of the sheer diversity and offerings of Ohio entrepreneurs and the wide reach of these companies across the nation and around the world,” Husted said.

The Profile will periodically feature a handful of diverse businesses with a common theme on the Secretary of State’s website and social media outlets. The program kicks of this June with five Ohio businesses that can help prepare for a family picnic: JTM Food Group, Premier Produce, Smith Dairy Products Company, Ballreich’s Potato Chips and Longaberger. This regular feature is intended to be interactive and Ohioans are encouraged to submit companies and themes to the Secretary of State’s office for future Profiles.

In May, Secretary Husted also released his first monthly report of new business filings, another indicator of business activity that he hopes will add to the overall discussion as government and business work together to turn Ohio’s economy around.

“As we work to improve Ohio’s overall business climate, the demonstrated successes of existing Ohio companies can be one of the best marketing tools we have to encourage others to invest here,” Husted said.

To view June’s Ohio Business Profile or submit an Ohio company for future consideration, visit www.sos.state.oh.us/SOS/OBP.aspx.
