Manufacturing leadership supported by a robust transportation infrastructure
South Central Ohio’s JEDISO Region has long shared the state’s reputation as a manufacturing leader. With more than 150 years of manufacturing tradition and a regional labor shed of more 327,000 people who are accustomed to hard work and who take pride in a job well done, we can deliver the skilled workforce you need to start operations quickly and build up your business.
We’re centrally located in the nation’s auto and appliance corridors, with a network of Interstate-caliber divided highways in every direction that offers fast access to Interstates 64, 70, 71, and 77. For larger shipments, we have sites with direct rail service and access to truck-to-train transload sites. And if you’re in the aerospace industry, you’ll appreciate the fact two of our counties are Certified AeroReady, reducing your risks.
Precision manufacturing demands a reliable workforce pipeline, and our region’s education providers offer a wide variety of education and training programs to maintain a strong supply of people ready to help you succeed. 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.
