Covington May Lose Two Major Employers

Aug 29, 2011

Officials in Covington, Northern Kentucky's largest city, are concerned two significant employers - Omnicare Inc. and The Nielsen Co. (formerly known as AC Nielsen) - may be lured across the Ohio River or to another part of Northern Kentucky, taking not only two prestigious firms from Covington's riverfront office towers, but also approximately $1 million in combined annual payroll taxes. Covington officials believe a combination of forces have increased the possibility Nielsen and Omnicare may move.
