Company hosts job fair for veterans

Posted: Updated:
NAPOLEON, Ohio -

Manufacturing company Isofoton will host a job fair for veterans in Napoleon Friday.

The company recently began operating the plant -- and is looking for veterans and current members of the military to hire.

Jason Gongwer, human resource specialist at  Isofoton said,  "I think your veterans have learned something over the years and they're dedicated, they have the desire.  They're not only committed to not only the country, but their community.  So I think the best thing that we can do is offer them an opportunity to come into a brand new company and use their training and their backgrounds."

The company says it's looking to fill between 120 and 130 positions with a goal of having half or more being veterans.

The job fair is from nine to four Friday at the Henry County Office Complex on Oakwood Avenue.
