Ohio is ranked first in the nation for polymer industry output. Nearly 9% of all U.S. polymer industry jobs are located in Ohio. Appalachian Ohio continues to be a leader in the polymer industry and the region is making a name for itself as the “second polymer valley.”
Southern Ohio is home to multiple chemical and polymer manufacturers. Spurred by the availability of a trained workforce and Shawnee State University’s Plastics engineering program, polymer manufacturers across the region are growing. Your company can, too!
