With extreme weather on the rise, Ohio is the low-risk pick
When natural disasters strike, they inflict damage and destruction, leaving people and businesses to pick up the pieces. Unfortunately, due to the increased trend of extreme weather events, what was once a rare occurrence is fast becoming a common reality. When businesses consider their top site selection factors, climate risks to businesses are considerations that are proving to be ever higher priorities. Ohio has the low-risk environment and developed infrastructure businesses need to operate safely and securely.
Air service is vital to economic development, which is why JobsOhio is helping to bring more of it to Ohio
Terrence Slaybaugh, vice president of sites and infrastructure, JobsOhio
Ohio has been gradually losing flight service since 2005. This loss was further escalated by the pandemic which leveled the air service field across the U.S. With the help of JobsOhio, Ohio’s economic development corporation, the state is making key investments in air service restoration under the JobsOhio Air Service Restoration program.

A one-size-fits-all approach to investing in a new business location does not exist. However, there is a partner available to companies when they’re scouting locations. Ohio’s network of state, regional and local organizations work together to help companies find the best sites, solutions, connections and more as they make a strategic investment decision.
Companies from across the United States and the world choose to invest in Ohio because Ohio has the business climate, the people and the resources they need to grow. Ohio is culturally and economically vibrant, making it a great place to invest in and call home.
