Shoptech recognized by the USA partnership for Development
March 2, 2006
Shoptech Software was recognized by the Cincinnati USA Partnership for Economic Development for contributing to the overall growth of the region with regards to newly created jobs. Each spring the Regional USA Partnership recognizes the previous year’s growth companies at the annual Growth Awards Celebration. Shoptech doubled its office space and added over 32% to its work force in 2005.
Keeping jobs in the USA
“We are honored to be recognized by the USA Partnership. This award reaffirms our commitment to growing our company from within the US, especially at a time when so many software companies are going overseas.” stated Phillip M. Hutchinson, President and CEO of Shoptech Software. “The manufacturing industry has been hard hit by overseas competition and it would be a disservice to our customers and frankly our country if we relocated jobs out of the US”.
The award is based on national criteria measuring investment, square footage and new and retained jobs. The USA Partnership worked closely with local communities to identify new to the region and retention projects that made investments in the region. The data was then analyzed by the Economic Center for Education and Research at the University of Cincinnati for the overall impact in the region.
