Why Ohio?

Path Robotics plans to expand personnel at its existing facility at 524 Maier Place and locate additional production operations at 3950 Business Park Drive, both in Columbus. The company cites a “strong talent pool paired with” a “forward-looking manufacturing industry” for choosing Ohio.

Ohio has the No. 3 largest manufacturing workforce in the U.S. and this talent is innovative. In fact, this talent supports companies in Ohio that are specializing in industrial internet of things (IIoT), additive manufacturing, 3D printing, automation, advanced materials (including glass-filled composites), and advanced metal alloys.

The majority of the company’s growth will occur at its existing facility, with a portion of its growth happening at its new, secondary location.
