Within a day’s drive of hundreds of OEM auto plants
South Central Ohio’s JEDISO Region is perfectly situated to help auto component manufacturers grow their business. Not only are we in one of the nation’s top auto producing states, but we’re within a single day’s truck drive (600 miles) of hundreds of OEM facilities for autos, trucks, and major assemblies. Thanks to a network of Interstate-caliber divided highways in every direction with fast access to Interstates 64, 70, 71, and 77, you’ll be in excellent shape to meet OEM JIT needs and other production requirements. For larger shipments, we have sites with direct rail service and access to truck-to-train transload sites.
Ohio has long been a manufacturing leader, and the JEDISO Region has been a key contributor to that status. That established manufacturing tradition and a regional labor shed of more 327,000 hard-working people mean we can provide the skilled workforce you need to start operations quickly and grow along with your business. Just as important, the region’s workforce is accustomed to hard work and believes in a job well done.
The JEDISO Region’s education providers keep the area’s workforce pipeline sustainable through a wide variety of education and training programs. At the K-12 and postsecondary levels, educators focus on preparing young people for success in the local economy by helping them develop and sharpen skills in advanced manufacturing, CNC programming and operation, automotive, engineering, welding, and other in-demand areas.
In addition, our area’s utility providers bring remarkably affordable rates and a business-focused approach to what they do, so they’ll work with you to provide a reliable supply at a cost that keeps your operation healthy.
