NIC Global is a large cog in the economic engine of Ross County, serving as a Tier 1 manufacturer for Kenworth Truck Co. The company manufactures and assembles sheet metal components that go into various places on Kenworth trucks; some of the largest being complete sides and backs of sleeper units. Their facility off of Delano Road in the industrial park is also helping to push forward perceptions of ability and the developmentally disabled community.
