140+ new jobs announced at two area companies


Two companies will bring 141 new jobs and investments totaling nearly $10 million to the Dayton region.

L & L Food Holdings is planning a new location in Wilmington in Clinton County. The company will invest $3.1 million in the project and create 100 new jobs, according to the Dayton Development Coalition.

L&L Foods is a provider of high volume food packaging solutions with strong expertise in portion control food applications. L&L produces over 2.5 million units of finished products and product variations a week for their customers across the country.

Coalition officials also announced a $6.6 million new location for the Perham Egg Company in Ft. Recovery. The project will generate 41 new jobs in Mercer County, according to the coalition.

Perham Egg buys fresh shell eggs from farm producers and sells the bulk liquid egg to food processors. They also provide niche and custom egg breaking services for further processors of eggs.

“We are very excited about Perham Eggs’ new facility,” said Mercer County Economic Development Director Jared Ebbing in a release. “This was a great collaboration between Ft. Recovery, Mercer County, JobsOhio and the Dayton Development Coalition.”

The job announcements represent positive momentum for the Dayton region’s economy, DDC Vice President for Development David Burrows said.

“These projects show growth throughout our region and the great collaboration between the Dayton Development Coalition and our county partners,” Burrows said in a release
