Ohio: A leader in capital investment
Attracting more capital investment than any other state in the nation, Ohio is known for its reduced taxes, strong incentive packages and skilled workforce. In fact, Site Selection ranked Ohio number one in its Governor’s Cup 2019 and 2020 state economic and business attraction rankings for bringing more new corporate facility projects per capita than any other state in the nation. Ohio also earned the number two spot for total projects overall, making it the only state to place in the top three in both categories. Over the past eight years (2012-2019) Ohio has been among the top four states in the nation with regards to new and expanded business facilities.
As competition becomes more global, Ohio’s central location and strength in transportation, distribution and logistics affords companies the ability to maximize flexibility while reducing supply-chain costs. Ohio is within 600 miles (1,000 kilometers) of 62 percent of all U.S. and Canadian manufacturing locations and is home to port, air, river, rail and interstate transportation linking all North American and global markets.
With a central location, skilled workforce and strong incentive packages, Ohio means business.

- A strong, growing workforce
- Easy market access
