For the seventh year in a row, Ohio has finished second in Site Selection Magazine’s 2018 Governor’s Cup, a competition that measures the economic development power of states by qualifying new site selections. Each of those years, Ohio was bested only by Texas.
Ohio reported 454 qualifying projects to Texas’s 608.
States are also ranked by qualifying projects per capita. In this race, Ohio ranked third, after Nebraska and Kentucky.
To be included, projects must meet one of three criteria: a minimum investment of $1 million, creation of 20 or more new jobs or 20,000 square feet or more of new space. 3/5/2019
