Manufacturing is one of the fastest growing industries in Northwest Ohio. We're not just making things here, we are making things better. But as the industry grows, Northwest Ohio's manufacturers are facing unique challenges as an industry, including:
How can manufacturers work together to ensure that the right talent is being developed instead of encouraging the transfer of workers between companies?
How can manufacturers make sure career opportunities are well-known, accessible, and offers pathways for students and workers of all skill levels?
How can manufacturers market themselves to show that the industry has developed over the years as an interesting, highly automated and progressive way to start and continue a career?
An industry led, community supported partnership that will strengthen the manufacturing sector and connect our residents to meaningful careers. Industry Sector Partnerships are a partnership of businesses from the same industry in a shared labor market that works with education, workforce development, economic development, and community organizations to address the common needs of the industry.
