State Senator Terry Johnson (R-McDermott) Tuesday applauded the recent announcement that Tata Consultancy Services, part of Tata Group, has announced plans to increase its operations by hiring more than 800 employees, including at its Seven Hills Park campus in Miami Township, Clermont County.

"These kinds of investments are crucial for the workforce and economic development we love to see in our communities," said Senator Johnson. "The workforce of tomorrow is going to be driven by science, technology, engineering and math and Tata Consultancy Services, along with JobsOhio and REDI Cincinnati, are excellent partners to ensure our communities are at the forefront of that effort."

Tata Consultancy Services is a global information technology service, consulting and business solutions company with plans to expand its operation in Ohio, particularly in Greater Cincinnati. This expansion and operations increase will be supported by an investment of $518 million over the next two years.

Senator Johnson represents the 14th District in the Ohio Senate, which encompasses all of Adams, Brown, Clermont and Scioto counties as well as a portion of Lawrence County. Learn more at www.OhioSenate.gov/Johnson.
