Council approves Rightway Fasteners tax abatement

A one-million dollar investment in new equipment is expected to create seven new jobs at Rightway Fasteners.

Company representatives approached the Columbus City Council this week to request a tax abatement on the costs of a new cold-forging machine, four sorting machines and two shot blast machines. Rightway says the equipment is needed to meet the needs of increased production demand.

Council approved the 10-year personal property abatement.
