Company Need:

PCC was considering an R&D and manufacturing investment to support a new integration model. An environment near to vendors and diverse engineering firms was critical in its decision to build in Ohio.

Testimonial:

“We were really impressed with the strong industry partnerships Mason, Ohio, has established in the business community, as well as the state and local collaboration. This is exactly the type of environment we were seeking.” – Blake Ray, vice president of advanced manufacturing, PCC

Why Ohio?

After a global search, PCC decided to build a new 31-acre campus within Mason, Ohio’s, new 400-acre R&D Park.

The site was selected for its connectivity to complementary aerospace clients and partners along Innovation Way and southwest Ohio. Ohio has been a leader in aviation since the beginning of flight. Today, it is the No. 1 supplier of Boeing and Airbus, and home to industry innovators including L3 Harris and GE Aviation. Business partnerships and state and local collaboration were also important in the company’s final decision.

The site will have two facilities: a concept research and development integration center for its PCC aerostructures division and a manufacturing innovation center for its SPS technologies business.

Collaborators:

REDI Cincinnati, the city of Mason, Mason City Council, Mason Port Authority, JobsOhio and the Ohio Development Services Agency
