State Rep. Brigid Kelly (D-Cincinnati) today commended the Ohio Tax Credit Authority’s approval of a 1.551 percent, eight-year Job Creation Tax Credit for St. Bernard Soap Company in Hamilton County.

“St. Bernard Soap Company’s long standing professional excellence deem them more than worthy of this opportunity to grow,” said Kelly. “Successful and unique businesses are an essential asset in the Cincinnati region, and it is critical to recognize those that are making a considerable mark in shaping the community’s economic future. I’m excited to see what’s next for St. Bernard Soap Company and look forward to more high quality jobs coming to my district.”

St. Bernard Soap Company, in the city of St. Bernard in Hamilton County, expects to create 112 new full-time positions, generating $4.7 million in new annual payroll and retaining $9 million in existing payroll as a result of the company’s acquisition project. St. Bernard Soap Company manufacturers bar soap for various companies.

The proposal was one of six affirmed in the monthly meeting held yesterday for a Job Creation Tax Credit set to create 656 new jobs and retain 1,365 jobs statewide.
