ATM maker Diebold to build new Ohio headquarters

ATM maker Diebold (DEE'-bohld) Inc. is planning to build a new world headquarters on its home turf in northeast Ohio.

The North Canton-based company said Tuesday it's looking to consolidate its existing offices in the Akron/Canton area at a new $100 million campus in the region. It's considering a handful of possible sites for the facility, where 1,500 employees will work.

Diebold says the decision comes after discussions that involved officials in other states. Ohio offered about $56 million in incentives including tax credits and loans so Diebold would stay.

Republican Gov. John Kasich (KAY'-sik) joined officials for the announcement Tuesday. He says he's excited Diebold is staying.

Diebold also makes other self-service machines. It says it has more than 16,000 employees in more than 90 countries.
