About the OMA


Our Mission: To Protect and Grow Ohio Manufacturing 

Since our founding in 1910, manufacturers have always been The Ohio Manufacturers’ Association’s only constituency.

Your need to compete is our only concern. And working to ensure manufacturing competitiveness is our only business.

If you’re a manufacturer with operations in the Buckeye State, there has never been a better time to join forces with roughly 1,300 other manufacturers statewide, working together to protect and grow Ohio manufacturing.


Helping Ohio Manufacturers Stay Competitive

The actions, or inactions, of government play a significant role in determining manufacturers’ cost of doing business.

That’s why the OMA provides a voice to Ohio’s manufacturing industry, while providing valued services that help members save money, reduce burdens, grow your talent, and solve regulatory challenges.

With a respected public policy team, the OMA focuses on key legislative, regulatory, and judicial issues affecting Ohio manufacturers. Additionally, OMA members benefit from the OMA’s wide portfolio of programs, products, events, and services.
