“We are thrilled to be moving our team into the heart of downtown—a city built upon innovation and ingenuity … We are confident our new space will allow us to embrace the innovative spirit of the city and continue to produce outstanding work,” the print and digital communications company said in a statement.

The company — formerly Standard Register — is moving its employees into eight stories of the office tower with the help of $1 million from the county and city.

As part of the agreement, Taylor says it will spend at least $2.4 million on facility improvements, equipment and other items so it can occupy about 130,000 square feet of space in the office tower, spread across about eight floors. Taylor will maintain a presence at its campus in West Dayton.

In exchange for the city’s support, Taylor has agreed to pay at least $500,000 annually in wage withholding taxes through 2023.
