Inspired by the Blueprint for Manufacturing
The vision set forward by The Blueprint for Manufacturing in Northeast Ohio inspires all of MAGNET's work, including the design, purpose and opportunity our new building affords the region. The Blueprint identifies four pillars, each of which drives all our efforts: Talent, Innovation, Transformation and Leadership. The design and development of our new headquarters, The Manufacturing Innovation, Technology & Job Center, was no different.
The future of manufacturing starts here. The future of manufacturing starts now.
We couldn't have done this without you
More than 100 donors supported this building with gifts totaling $13 million – THANK YOU! Northeast Ohio’s manufacturers, foundations, and community organizations came together to build the future of manufacturing.
The story of the artist and the featured scientists.
