Advanced Manufacturing

Craft next-generation manufacturing solutions

Greater Cincinnati is a region of makers, igniting major advances in manufacturing since William Procter and James Gamble started making soap and candles in the 1800s.

Today, our region remains uniquely equipped to support advanced manufacturing through innovative talent, ready sites and powerful shipping infrastructure.

Talent that Spurs Innovation

From the manufacturing floor to the executive office, successful companies need a mix of well-trained workers to support growth. With a higher concentration of skilled manufacturing workers than our competitors and a low cost of doing business, you will find trained talent for less.

Additionally, the region’s colleges and universities help students learn necessary technical skills while leveraging a strong R&D culture to discover new ways to do more with less.

  • 172,833 manufacturing industry workers within 50 miles of the Cincinnati city center
  • 210 automotive assembly facilities within 50 miles of Cincinnati city center
