Re-Patriating Manufacturing Jobs through a New Industrial Park – Ogden, Utah
In 2015, EDA awarded $2.2 million to support the construction of a new waterline to service the Ogden Business Exchange, a business and light industrial park currently being developed and marketed in Ogden, Utah.
Additional water service was needed to meet the demands of the park’s anchor tenant, ENVE Composites, an established, growing Ogden-based company that currently employs 150 technology and advanced manufacturing workers in the area.
With the expansion, ENVE committed to re-patriating manufacturing jobs from its Chinese manufacturing affiliates back to the United States.
ENVE anticipates that it will be able to expand its current Ogden workforce of 150 employees to 325 employees by 2023.
