29 August 2012 — SZNA’s move, announced today, is expected to create up to 140 new jobs in the Osgood area by the end of 2016. The solar panel manufacturer will invest $7 million in a facility that will initially be used to build its Combined Heat and Power PV-Therm modules. 

In a statement State Sen. Johnny Nugent said, “I commend Solarzentrum for seeing Osgood’s potential, and I am grateful for this employer’s investment in Ripley County. 

“This latest jobs announcement helps confirm Southeast Indiana is becoming a prime destination for manufacturers looking to expand or relocate. From March 2011 to March 2012, our region saw an increase in manufacturing jobs, with more than 56,000 industrial workers now employed here.”
