Resource-rich and at the center of an enormous labor shed
South Central Ohio’s JEDISO Region is an ideal site for companies in many industries, for so many reasons. Start with a regional labor shed that includes more than 327,000 people who have been raised in industries like manufacturing, farming, and timber, where a good day’s work and pride in what one does are cherished values. Add in K-12 and postsecondary education providers who work closely with employers to keep the workforce pipeline full and to prepare residents for success in the local economy.
There’s also transportation access that makes it easy to connect with the more than 176 million consumers who live within a single day’s truck drive (600 miles) of us, such as the network of Interstate-caliber divided highways in every direction offering fast access to Interstates 64, 70, 71, and 77 -- plus plenty of rail capacity and access to both river and ocean shipping.
Then factor in the low cost of doing business and living in the JEDISO Region. There’s abundant electricity, natural gas, propane, water, and broadband to meet the needs of growing companies, delivered by utility providers who bring a business-focused approach to ensure a reliable supply at a cost that keeps operations competitive and profitable. And we have a wide variety of affordable sites, developable land, and existing buildings that are suitable for companies in many industries.
