The Governor of Ohio makes a visit to Zanesville, Tuesday.

Governor John Kasich along with JobsOhio General Manager David Mustine and Halliburton Senior Vice President for the Southern Region will join local officials as Halliburton breaks ground on its new southern Ohio site.

Halliburton recently purchased 174 acres of land at the Eastpointe Business Park for development. The company is one of the world’s largest providers in the energy industry and the third Fortune 500 company to locate to Eastpointe.

The land will be used to build an operations hub that supports customers in the Utica Shale development.

The company is expected to bring 300 jobs to the area.

The ceremony will take place this afternoon at Eastpointe. Tune in to the WHIZ-TV News at 6 for more.
