COLUMBUS- State Representative Sean Patrick Brennan (D-Parma) is announcing Victoriaville & Co. USA Manufacturing Inc. was awarded an estimated $514,000 job creation tax credit from the state of Ohio. The largest producer of wooden caskets and one of the largest distributors of funeral supplies in North America. Victoriaville will be required to create 100 new full-time jobs, generate $5 million in new payroll by the end of 2026, and stay in Cleveland for at least 11 years in order to receive the credit’s full value.

Brennan, whose district the facility will be located in. “Job creation and retention are vital to our local economy and key to improving the quality of life of those we serve.”
