Ohio is a leader in the automotive technology and innovation industry. Ohio’s automotive advantage translates into real-world strategic value for companies. A large auto specific workforce of over 108,000 individuals (about the seating capacity of the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum) is among the largest in the Midwest; with both seasoned professionals and skilled newcomers who build quality into products.  

A full, in-state automotive supply chain and a location amid a concentration of automotive establishments in North America, offer accessibility to customers and suppliers, increasing speed to market and minimizing risk of supply disruptions. In Ohio, companies partner with each other, education, government, and research entities to strengthen the position in the industry. Ohio is an automotive powerhouse.  

The only thing that runs deeper than generations of automotive expertise is the collective pride in moving the industry forward. Every day, automotive advancements in Ohio have a global impact. So, when you think automotive, think Ohio.
