At the recent West End Community Council meeting, Messer Construction Co. presented the vision for new Headquarters to be located in West End Cincinnati, between Cutter St., Court St., Mound St. and I-75.
The residents expressed strong support for the move and applauded Messer's commitment to help with jobs creation for West End residents, and for becoming the Corporate Sponsor of George Hays-Jennie Porter Elementary, which recently became Ohio's first "High-Tech Elementary School". The engagement at Hays-Porter would be similar to what Cincinnati Bell did with Taft Information Technology High School. Both companies expressed interest to collaborate in supporting the creation of the "IT Education Hub" in West End.
Construction of the 50,000-square-foot facility is expected to start later this year, with completion slated for late 2017. The building will accommodate the 116 employees who currently work at the corporate office, along with another 40 the company plans to hire over the next three years.
BHDP Architecture will design the building, and Messer has committed to a 30 percent spend with certified minority- and women-owned contractors during the construction process.
On April 19, 2016, it was announced that Messer Construction Co. has earned eighth place on DiversityInc’s 2016 Top 13 Companies for Supplier Diversity ranking.
