On Wednesday, a company that received a “jobs creation” tax credit from JobsOhio announced that it is moving its headquarters from Ohio to Illinois.

The company will add forty jobs in suburban Chicago, ten of which will be transfers from the Ohio branch. A spokesman said the company chose Chicago because of better access to international flights, access to worker-training programs, and because of sister companies that have already located there.

In July 2011, Ohio approved a seven-year, 55% tax credit for Rittal to create 118 new jobs in Urbana and keep $21.7 million in existing payroll there. It was among the first companies to receive state credits after JobsOhio opened for business.

The company’s new Chicago-area headquarters will be fully operational in September.
