  • Mexican regulators reject Sherwin-Williams takeover bid, again
  • Cleveland Clinic moving 700 workers to empty B of A offices 
  • Nestle brings frozen pizza research to Solon 
  • Traffic deaths down in Ohio
    Traffic deaths in Ohio could hit a record low this year, according to the State Highway Patrol.

    Statistics show that the state could even dip below 1,000 traffic fatalities this year for the first time since the state began keeping records.

    The Columbus Dispatch reports that there were 823 traffic deaths in Ohio through Monday. Vehicle safety improvements and better highway-construction techniques are credited with driving down highway deaths.


    Mexican regulators reject Sherwin-Williams takeover bid, again
    Cleveland-based paint maker Sherwin-Williams has hit another roadblock in its planned take-over of the Mexican paint company Comex.

    For the second time this year Mexican regulators rejected Sherwin-Williams’ $2.3 billion dollar acquisition offer.  

    Mexican trade commissioners also blocked the deal in July.

    Sherwin-Williams succeeding in September in buying Comex’s U.S. and Canadian divisions, but have so far been unable to cement a deal to purchase the much larger Mexican retail market.

    Company officials say they are reviewing their options after today’s announcement.


    Cleveland Clinic moving 700 workers to empty B of A offices 
    The Cleveland Clinic is moving 700 workers out of an aging industrial complex in Cleveland into soon to be empty offices in Beachwood.

    The Plain Dealer reports the mostly IT and administrative employees will relocate from the former Parker-Hannifin building to the Bank of America complex. 

    Lay-offs take effect tomorrow for approximately 1,000 Bank of America employees in its mortgage and consumer banking divisions.

    The Cleveland Clinic owns the five building complex in Beachwood.  


    Nestle brings frozen pizza research to Solon 
    Nestle USA announced today it's relocating its frozen pizza division from Illinois to the Cleveland suburb of Solon, joining its other businesses and an expanding research center there.

    The world's largest food company expects about 250 jobs eventually to come from the move, adding to a current Ohio workforce of 2,500.

    Nestle is building a $53 million R&D center in Solon to specialize in frozen and chilled foods research.
