COSHOCTON − A cutting edge technological firm in an emerging industry opened a new facility Monday in Coshocton. It’s one of the largest of its kind in Ohio.

Standard Power held a ribbon cutting at its blockchain and data center at 500 N. Fourth St., on the grounds of the former WestRock papermill that closed in 2015. Standard Power bought the property in October 2018 and former Mayor Steve Mercer first touted the firm coming to town in his State of the City address in January 2019.
