This Blueprint for Manufacturing in Northeast Ohio is the product of 300 hours of conversation with 150 industry influencers — manufacturing CEOs, community and business leaders, academics, workers, students, and nonprofit leaders.
Together, we’re going to make our region better.
Manufacturers fought through the Great Recession. We survived the global pandemic. And today we stand on the cusp of a tremendous opportunity.
As we rebuild our post-COVID-19 industry, the big question is:
We want the future to be made here in Northeast Ohio. By our people, in our factories.
We want to, once again, be a place where innovators bring big ideas from all over the world. We want to create thousands more jobs and lead the world in smart manufacturing.
To unlock the future, we need to commit to massive change in four areas. Use the Blueprint to guide your actions, and join us as a Blueprint Champion.
TALENT: Build the workforce we need to win in the future
TRANSFORMATION: Use Industry 4.0 technologies to unlock advantage
INNOVATION: Pioneer new products and new ways of working
LEADERSHIP: Boldly lead our companies and region
