State Rep. Diane Grendell (R-Chesterland) announces healthcare business PartsSource, in conjunction with JobsOhio, will be expanding within Aurora to continue its growth in the Northeast Ohio region. Grendell applauded the move.

“We believe in the potential of our area, our pro-business climate and the advancement of our workforce in Portage County. I thank PartsSource for their commitment to our area and communities,” said Grendell.

With the expansion, PartsSource is expected to create nearly 100 new jobs and retain 179 jobs. PartsSource cited the workforce as a key factor in its expansion decision.

Specifically, within the medical field, Ohio has a growing talent pool of around 80,000 bioscience employees – this included 10,000 bioscience student graduates in 2017, a 30 percent increase from 2010 levels.

PartsSource collaborated with JobsOhio, Team NEO, Aurora, Portage Development Board, and the Ohio Department of Development to secure the expansion in the region.

PartsSource is a vendor supplier and online database of medical replacement parts.
