Current Business of the Month

February 2022 - The Hillman Group
IMAGE_7Keeping existing businesses here in Forest Park is another objective of our economic development program. Our February award winner demonstrates the effectiveness of our business retention initiative. The Hillman Group currently has an impressive 400,000 SF distribution facility at Carillon Business Park. When the company decided to launch a reconfiguration of its facilities, they worked closely with city officials to identify options. Working together, we were able to find a suitable solution for their space needs. The company recently started work on an impressive renovation of a vacant building in the Kemper Meadow Business Center to compliment (not replace) their Carillon Park facility. Hillman will bring its SW Ohio office to this Kemper Meadow location. Founded in 1964, Hillman is a leading North American provider of complete hardware solutions, delivered with industry best customer service to over 26,000 customers. Their latest investment demonstrates the value of a Forest Park business address.

January 2022 - Liberty Mutual
IMAGE_6By bringing new companies to Forest Park, we grow our business community and create jobs in the City. Our January Business of the Month is an example of our successful business recruitment program. When Ameritas completed a multi-million dollar reconfiguration of its Carillon Park campus, space at one of the company's existing buildings became available. The management team at Ameritas worked closely with us to bring a top-notch company to the 70,000 SF building. Earlier this year, Liberty Mutual moved into the building bringing its Southwest Ohio office to Forest Park. Since its founding in 1912, Liberty Mutual has grown into the country’s sixth largest global property and casualty insurer. Their associates work hard each and every day to support their customers helping people protect their families, build their businesses, and invest in their futures. On behalf of everyone here at the City, we welcome Liberty Mutual to Forest Park.
