Geneva nets $388,455 for True Temper cleanup



Brown said increased business growth prompted the Geneva plant expansion on the 11 acres of adjacent, vacant land.

“The neighboring vacant 11 acres is the logical location to expand, except for the simple fact that the surrounding property had a legacy of environmental contamination,” she said.

Securing grant dollars for the project has been a team effort, Brown said.

“Many folks rallied together in order to find ways to ensure we wouldn’t lose a fine, homegrown business,” she said.

Matt Kanicki, vice president of ALS, said he appreciates the city’s commitment to the project.

“Without the hard work and commitment of the city, and Jennifer Brown in particular, this project would never have been possible. This investment demonstrates our commitment to our employees, the city of Geneva, Ashtabula County and it also represents what is possible when local government and businesses partner together,” he said.
