Lima Allen County is again in the spotlight with a recent article in Forbes magazine.

The Joint Systems Manufacturing Center is the topic of an article in Forbes entitled "How President Trump Saved the Last Tank Plant in America". The JSMC is no stranger to anyone in West Central Ohio as it has been a part of our industrial base for decades. The facility has been on the base realignment and closure list of the Department of Defense more than once. It has taken the work of more than just one person to bring it back up to speed. For nearly 15 years Task Force Lima has been working with bipartisan support to keep the facility viable knowing a third M1 tank was coming. It's now that the fruit of their labors is being seen. Task Force Lima co-chair, Lima Mayor David Berger, says the Forbes article gives a good representation of where the JSMC has been and where it is now.

"I think there have been a number of people who have worked very hard in order to make certain that the tank plant remains what it is, which is a national defense asset and it's truly been a bipartisan effort on the part of the federal government and I think we should be applauding that," said Mayor Berger.

Berger says it's now time to get the state on board to have a proactive attitude when it comes to its defense-related assets.
