Siemens Energy & Automation
The State of Ohio provided a number of incentives to Siemens to help secure the investment,
"I am honored to be a part of the inauguration of the Norwood Motor Manufacturing Facility," said Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland. "Ohio's economic prowess has been driven by manufacturing. And investments by global manufacturing companies such as Siemens represent the future of Ohio's economic landscape."
"American workers are the best in the world, their education and skill level are great assets in the global marketplace. Siemens realized this, and their investment will pay dividends for both Ohio workers, and their shareholders," said Ohio U.S. Rep. Jean Schmidt. "I look forward to a long term mutually beneficial relationship between Siemens and Southern Ohio."
"The Norwood facility is a great example of how technological innovation can help revitalize an industry, especially with the help of a highly skilled and productive work force," said George Nolen, president and CEO of Siemens Corporation. "In partnering with Siemens and its workforce, the State of Ohio has demonstrated great vision and a meaningful commitment to innovation and the health of manufacturing in America."
"Siemens is committed to our employees and to manufacturing in the U.S.," said Dennis Sadlowski, president and CEO, Siemens Energy & Automation, Inc. "With the strong workforce here in Norwood and the expansion complete, Siemens is confident the Norwood facility will remain a center of excellence for the company by producing the highest-quality motors for our customers and driving motor technology innovations that will dramatically improve the efficiency of manufacturing throughout the world."

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
