Ohio MFG Connect

Welcome to the Ohio Manufacturing Connect website. OMC’s purpose is to help Ohio Manufacturers become stronger and more successful. The goals are both job retention and growth and to connect Ohio’s Manufacturers with potential customers. Ohio has many advantages including:

  • A central location in the major population markets of North America. “Geographically, Ohio is within 600 miles of more than half the U.S. and Canadian populations and a day’s drive from more than 70 percent of North America’s manufacturing capacity, so your company gets easy, affordable access to supply chains and customers.

  • A superior transportation network accessing those markets. Ohio’s “world-class transportation system includes eight interstate highways, five international airports, and some of the world’s largest public and private airports dedicated solely to cargo shipment. We host the fourth-highest rail freight traffic in the U.S. and 25 ports and terminals on 700 miles of navigable waterways leading to the Gulf of Mexico and the Saint Lawrence Seaway.”

  • A workforce that is internationally recognized for its manufacturing skills and work ethic. “More than 115,000 skilled professionals are employed at nearly 1,660 advanced manufacturing operations in Ohio.”

  • A great place to work, live, and play. “Ohio is one of the only states with three major cities (Columbus, Cleveland, and Cincinnati) and multiple micropolitan regions throughout the state. Ohio’s cities and towns offer low costs of living and a wealth of cultural, educational and recreational opportunities.”
