Today's announcement is a testament to this vision and a tribute to the hard work of our economic development team and community partners."

Roger Wehner, director of economic development, AWS added, "Our newest investment in New Albany builds on our rich partnership with the community and the state, and our ongoing investment will help continue to foster innovation, advance the next generation of local technology leaders, and expand on the tremendous partnerships we have across the Buckeye State."
