From Columbus Business First.

Saama Technologies is doing much more than considering Columbus as its Midwest hub, thanks to some state support.

The Ohio Tax Credit Authority on Monday approved a 6-year, 55 percent job creation tax credit for the Campbell, Calif.-based data analytics firm, which has regional offices in Worthington.

The company expects to hire 90 full-time employees generating $7.2 million in annual payroll over the next three years, while retaining five positions with an annual payroll of $776,664.

It’s unclear exactly where the additional jobs will be located, but Saama is required to maintain operations in Franklin County for at least nine years. I left messages Saama executives for clarification. A Worthington official said the city was unsure of Saama’s plans.

“With a significant number of positions to fill, we knew we needed to expand in a location that provides an abundance of high-quality data analytics talent,” Ken Coleman, Saama board chairman and advisory board member for the Ohio State University Fisher College of Business, said in a press release. “The concentration of higher education institutions and strong corporate partners makes the Columbus region the right setting.”
