Two years ago, investment company EF Hutton relocated its headquarters to Springfield, Ohio.

The firm accepted a generous tax-incentive package, promising to invest millions of dollars and create up to 400 jobs in the city.

Some Springfielders say EF Hutton’s progress on these ambitious goals has been too slow. Now, EF Hutton officials hope a newly launched social-media investment platform will help convince the naysayers.

Springfield's R.D. Holder Company has announced that it will build a $1.5 million distribution center and headquarters in New Carlisle. The company will receive a seven year tax incentive from the town as an incentive to build there.

In April, a massive fire destroyed R.D. Holder's commercial lubricant distribution center in Clark County.

The company's new headquarters in the Rogers Industrial Park on North Dayton-Lakeview Road, is scheduled to open at the end of 2013.
