There are over 14,500 manufacturing firms throughout Ohio, from Fortune 500 companies to small and mid-sized firms. They account for more than $87 billion of output, significantly contributing to the state’s economy. However, there are thousands of unfilled jobs in manufacturing now that threaten continued growth and prosperity.
Ohio Dream It. Do It. introduces the world of today’s advanced manufacturing and provides resources to engage manufacturers, educators, students, and parents. The information is useful to inspiring and building a talent pipeline of young people who understand what manufacturing is and what education and skills are needed to prepare for a career in manufacturing.
