We recently came across an article talking about the continued steady growth of Ohio’s manufacturing sector and we’re excited to end the year on a positive note. Since Gov. John Kasich took office and implemented new policies to help the sector. National efforts of reshoring, STEM education, and manufacturing hubs have also helped to grow the industry. The growth in manufacturing is not only beneficial to manufacturers but also helps to bring more money into Ohio’s economy. George Mokrzan of Huntington Bank directly credits the resurging manufacturing sector for boosting consumer spending.
At Ohio Valley Manufacturing we have seen our own growth as well with more orders mostly due to Class 8 trucks and the rise of trailers. These increases have led us to expand our facilities to better serve our customers. This growth also means we need more skilled workers and we have posted two new job opportunities, one for a Tool & Die Design Engineer and a Toolmaker.
