Contributing more than 18% of Ohio’s overall GDP and accounting for more than 715,000 jobs, Ohio’s manufacturing sector is crucial to our economy — and our communities. So how is the Ohio manufacturing sector actually doing? Are the headwinds of a recession slowing down our largest economic sector, or do our state’s 15,000 manufacturing companies have the momentum they need to continue growing their companies and workforce in 2020?

The 2020 Ohio Manufacturing Survey, conducted by FASTLANE and the Ohio Manufacturing Extension Partnership, has the answers, trends, and insights that will deeply impact Dayton — and all of Ohio — going into 2020. You’ll hear from Phil Ratermann, Director of FASTLANE and Ned Hill, Professor of Economic Development at The Ohio State University. As technology rapidly changes, and our companies struggle to find skilled workers, Ohio manufacturing is at a crossroads. Be the first to hear the results, and use our analysis to stay ahead of the curve.
