AdobeStock_226771232-2Unlike other states, manufacturing makes up the largest sector of the Ohio economy, and accounts for 17% of GDP. With over 12,000 manufacturing firms in the state and over 660,000 jobs depending on the health of the industry, it can be difficult to keep up with the most relevant news, updated best practices, and legislative changes. That's why we have added a new section to our newsletter: Manufacturing Reads. Every month, we will include some of the top manufacturing new stories from across the state. Below, we've attached news and updates from our February Newsletter, which covers everything from labor shortages to the Academy Awards. Want to be kept in the loop for March?
