West Chester Protective Gear, a leading supplier of hand protection, rainwear and protective clothing, has announced a pending relocation of its corporate headquarters from Monroe to Sharonville, Ohio.

West Chester Protective Gear has over 120 full time employees and has outgrown its warehouse, distribution and office space at its current location. The Sharonville facility provides 60% more square footage and allows for future expansion for the rapidly growing durable goods company.

The company has an extensive global distribution network and annually supplies millions of industrial and consumer gloves, protective garments and rainwear to protect workers on the job and at home.

“The Gateway 75 property offers a superior location with excellent access to I-75 and I-275,” said Chris Dobrozsi, Vice President, Real Estate Development, Neyer Properties. “The property is ideally situated for distribution, manufacturing and assembly tenants such as West Chester Protective Gear.”

West Chester Protective Gear and Neyer worked closely with the City of Sharonville Department of Economic Development and the State of Ohio to receive significant incentives. The State of Ohio awarded Job Creation Tax Credits to the deal.

The City of Sharonville awarded the project a Job Creation Incentive Program in the form of a grant towards the company’s employee’s earnings tax. In addition, the city also awarded a forgivable loan that will be waived over a period of eight years so long as West Chester Protective Gear maintains its committed payroll projections.

“West Chester Protective Gear’s announcement is another excellent example of Sharonville’s pro-growth, pro-business policies,” said Chris Xeil Lyons, Economic Development Director, City of Sharonville. “Sharonville is a great place to do business and we are aggressive in attracting top companies such as West Chester Protective Gear to our community.”

West Chester Protective Gear is slated to move its warehouse operations to the new location in November 2013 with office operations fully relocated by June 2014.
