Liquid Manufacturing Solutions (“LMS”) is growing its operations in Franklin, Ohio, the company announced on Monday. Through support from the State of Ohio, JobsOhio and REDI Cincinnati, LMS will create 29 new jobs to meet the growing demand for its services.
“This is an exciting time for our business and for the City of Franklin. The business has grown five times since the acquisition in 2021 and we are excited to continue to offer more opportunities to Franklin and the surrounding areas in the years to come,” stated Steve Overdeck, LMS’s Chief Commercial Officer. “JobsOhio and REDI Cincinnati are essential to the expansion of LMS by providing a grant to be used for capital expenditure and new jobs. LMS is thankful for this partnership with JobsOhio and REDI Cincinnati. We could not do this without them.”
LMS is a privately-owned food processor with a manufacturing facility in Franklin, offering a range of services including supplying and distributing olive oil, vinegar and soaps for retail, food service and individual usage, producing customized blends and private labels, and bottling capabilities.
The expansion accompanies a growing demand for LMS’ services, which has quintupled in size since its founding in 2021. LMS, a fair-chance employer, will add positions in production, operations, quality control, laboratory technician, finance and human resources among more.
“Food and agribusiness is one of the largest and most productive industries in Ohio and Liquid Manufacturing Solutions is experiencing this firsthand as they plan their initial expansion since opening less than two years ago,” said J.P. Nauseef, JobsOhio president and CEO. “LMS’s investment in Franklin will add 29 new jobs, increasing its staff by 80 percent.”
“LMS is part of a vibrant food and flavoring industry in the Cincinnati region which has experienced a 6.5% growth in jobs over the last five years,” said Kevin Donnelly, REDI Cincinnati vice president for project management. “We are proud to support LMS as it rapidly expands within the sector and continues elevating our region’s profile.”
