Akron might receive windfall

Abstract:
Local businessman Michael S. Karder hopes to break ground on $30 million turbine plant that could create hundreds of jobs.

Karder, 52, president of family-run Karder Machine Co. and a financial adviser, plans to build a $30 million plant in Akron to manufacture and assemble giant three-bladed wind turbines.

His initiative could create 400 jobs initially and an additional 800 to 1,200 jobs after 18 months, he said.

Karder is looking at nanotechnology coatings as a way to combat ice on the blades, a problem facing turbines in cold-weather settings.

He said he is working with a large national retailer to develop a means of selling and maintaining small wind turbines for individual customers.

If his project succeeds, it is likely to have a big effect on jobs and parts suppliers across Northeast Ohio, Karder said.

"Once it goes, it will be a trigger," he said. "We're so desperate for good manufacturing jobs around here."
