City Club of Cleveland - 2-14-2020 -The State Of Manufacturing: Ohio's 2020 Manufacturing Survey Results
Producing over $100 billion of our GDP and employing more than 700,000 people, Ohio's manufacturing sector is an essential driver of our economy - and our society. So how is the Ohio manufacturing sector actually doing? Are the headwinds of a recession slowing down our largest economic sector, or do our state's 15,000 manufacturing companies have the momentum they need to continue growing their companies and workforces in 2020?

The 2020 Ohio Manufacturing Survey, conducted by MAGNET and the Ohio Manufacturing Extension Partnership, has the answers, trends, and insights that will deeply impact Cleveland - and all of Ohio - going into 2020. You'll hear from Ethan Karp, CEO of MAGNET, and from a panel of local manufacturing leaders as they respond to the report. As technology rapidly changes, and our companies struggle to find skilled workers, Ohio manufacturing is at a crossroads. Be the first to hear the results, and use MAGNET's analysis to stay ahead of the curve.
