    Restaurant Review: Alchemy Juice Bar and Cafe
    December 5, 2014 7:10 am – Miriam Bowers Abbott

    Some people eat reflexively: if food is appealing, down it goes. Others eat with rules, avoiding substances such as sugar, meat or gluten.

    Then there are those for whom food serves a function, it has to be balanced for the right energy or attention levels. It has to provide the right mix of the RDAs in some elaborate equation. For them, eating requires thought — as ingestibles are mentally weighed for potential contributions to holistic health. For them, we have Alchemy.

    Press Release:
    Hirschvogel Automotive Group to Invest $50 Million, Significantly Expand U.S. Presence in Columbus Region

    Columbus, OH – In an effort to significantly boost its only U.S. presence, Hirschvogel Automotive Group today announced it will invest more than $50 million to expand its existing Columbus Region facility and purchase new machinery and equipment. The Germany-based company, which is one of the world’s largest automotive suppliers in the area of steel and aluminum forging and machining, also will add 37 new jobs to its roster over the next three years.

    “The level of collaboration between the City of Columbus, Columbus 2020 and JobsOhio was a major factor in our decision to continue to invest in the Columbus Region with this latest expansion,” said Witold Salandyk, president and CEO, Hirschvogel Automotive Group. “Access to a well-trained manufacturing talent pool and the proximity to automotive customers have also kept us in Central Ohio.”

    The bulk of Hirschvogel Automotive Group’s investment will go toward new machinery and equipment to keep its Columbus Region facility at the forefront of the steel and aluminum forging and machining business. The company also will add 65,000 square feet to its existing location at 2230 S. Third Street on Columbus’ South Side, bringing its total footprint to more than 200,000 square feet.

    As part of its investment, the company will retain its 322-employee workforce and add 37 new jobs over the next three years. Hiring for the new jobs, which will all be manufacturing and machining positions, will begin in the fall.

    “Yet another major investment on the South Side is a welcome addition and we thank Hirschvogel,” said Mayor Michael B. Coleman. “Foreign-direct investment is important to the Columbus Region’s economic future, and so are more high-quality manufacturing jobs for our residents.”

    Hirschvogel Automotive Group has had a presence in Central Ohio since 1988.
