COLUMBUS, Ohio, Sept. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Mark Laskovics, president and chief operating officer of Girindus America Inc. [http://www.girindus.com], discusses Ohio's perfect combination of education and environment to build a successful bioscience business in a national advertising campaign for The Wall Street Journal. The Ohio Business Development Coalition, the nonprofit organization that markets the state for capital investment, sponsors the ongoing ad campaign.
Dr. Laskovics says after living all over the world, he's been able to construct his dream team in Ohio's business-friendly environment, while benefiting from the state's relaxed pace and focus on family.
"The convenience of living in Ohio - where entertainment, professional sports and your home are accessible and affordable - makes it easy for me to waste no time and live life to its fullest," said Dr. Laskovics.
Girindus, a technology-driven company creating solutions for the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries, finds the perfect talent from Ohio's extensive university system. The state's reasonable cost of living and easy lifestyle keep highly skilled scientists and specialists in Ohio.
In addition, Ohio's supportive business climate has been instrumental in the company's growth. A recent $1.2 million Ohio Third Frontier grant enabled Girindus to build a new production facility. Local government tax abatements and grants also helped lay the foundation for the company's success.
Dr. Laskovics is the latest business leader featured in the "Why Ohio?" ad campaign, a series highlighting prominent executives in a variety of industries who have found business and personal success in Ohio.
"Top-level executives who have a true work-life balance will perform better at their jobs and the company will only achieve greater success," said Ed Burghard, executive director of the Ohio Business Development Coalition. "Ohio offers low-cost, low stress communities in a combination of micropolitan and metropolitan cities. This diversity provides executives with the resources and time to make any ambition achievable. Ohio truly is the state of perfect balance."
