The Ohio Tax Credit Authority recently granted incentives to Southwest Ohio companies Everything But The House (EBTH) and Rotex Global LLC to “create more than 295 new jobs, retain 262 jobs and complete more than $1.1 million of capital investment” between them, Cincinnati.com reports. This is the second time in less than a year that EBTH received a tax credit (see our October 20, 2015 blog post) as the company continues to experience rapid growth.
