VEGA, a global leader in level and pressure measurement technology for the processing industry, announced today that it is expanding its manufacturing operation in the City of Mason with a 120,000-square-foot addition to its existing 120,000-square-foot advanced production facility at its North American headquarters. The expansion will enable VEGA to domestically produce electronic components it currently imports from the company's global headquarters in Schiltach, Germany.

The expansion, slated to break ground late in the first quarter and complete in the third quarter of 2025, will initially create 31 new full-time jobs with additional positions to follow as production capabilities are increased.

"Eliminating overseas shipping of components reduces our carbon footprint and puts us in a good position to achieve our corporate objective of becoming carbon neutral by 2033, as sustainability is a core operational value for VEGA," said John Groom, CEO of VEGA Americas. "It is important for us to continue to invest in our production capabilities to bolster our U.S. supply chain. We've planned our campus together with the City of Mason to position VEGA for this type of strategically driven growth at an accelerated pace."

VEGA's North American HQ caters to a broad range of industry sectors including chemical, pharmaceutical, food, drinking water, power generation, ships and aerospace, mirroring the diverse landscape of the City of Mason and Ohio. By providing unique and innovative measurement technology used in these highly complex processing industries, the continued growth of VEGA serves to strengthen these diverse sectors nationally.

"While this may seem like a traditional economic development announcement on the surface, this investment is much more," said Mason Director of Economic Development Michele Blair. "Our four-year friendship and partnership with VEGA is a collaborative and creative and the results are visible."

The City developed the 1,100-acre Mason R&D Park to both attract and scale companies that advance technology and research. VEGA's American HQ is a model to shape the park's identity for sustainability, scalability and community connectivity. The announcement of VEGA's phase 2 investment demonstrates the mutually advantageous nature of the public-private partnership. The project is moving forward with assistance from a $75,000 JobsOhio Grant and a CRA Tax Abatement expansion from the City of Mason.

"VEGA Americas is an innovative technology and services company and a strong Ohio partner," said JobsOhio President and CEO J.P. Nauseef. "The decision to expand its U.S. headquarters means 31 new jobs for hardworking Ohioans and deepens the state's industrial sensor and measurement system manufacturing expertise."

"VEGA Americas' expansion in Mason, Ohio, is a testament to our region's robust support ecosystem for businesses to locate and expand," said Kimm Lauterbach, president and CEO of REDI Cincinnati. "With nearly 3,000 sites and a workforce of 117,000, the advanced manufacturing sector continues to show strength, experiencing 6% job growth from 2017 to 2022, surpassing the national average of 4%."
