Chiyoda Integre selected to invest in Ohio, which offers a geographic location close to major automotive companies. Moreover, Ohio has the third largest manufacturing workforce in the U.S., offering enough talent for the company’s current and future needs.
From Ohio, companies can reach customers, suppliers, and research partners faster as Ohio is centrally located to more than 70% of current North American automotive assembly plants, thereby reducing travel time and transportation costs.
“Ohio’s position in the heart of the automotive industry and our top tier workforce continues to strengthen with investments from major global players like Chiyoda Integre,” said JobsOhio President and CEO J.P. Nauseef. “We and our partners welcome Chiyoda Integre’s decision to choose Ohio for its first U.S. manufacturing facility, which will lay the groundwork for the company’s future growth in the North American market.”
