Thousands of Engineers and Ph.D.’s + Southern Ohio = Formula for Innovation

It might surprise you to learn that the Southern Ohio region has a large number of engineers and Ph.D.’s, largely due to the presence of the Gaseous Diffusion Plant. Many came to the region to work at the “A-Plant” and wanted to stay. Other innovators were born here and started successful companies requiring the skilled workforce that the region has in abundance. Learn how the strong manufacturing legacy of the region, its natural resources, transportation assets, and most of all – its educated and innovative workforce  – make Southern Ohio the place to prosper.
