Burkland: Ohio Can Help Lead the Next Generation of Auto Manufacturing

In a guest column published this week by The Business Journal in Youngstown, OMA President Eric Burkland discusses the biggest change in automotive technology in more than a century — the electrification of cars and trucks — and the opportunity it presents Ohio to power the next generation of automotive manufacturing.

Burkland writes: “With its proposal of a battery cell factory, General Motors is offering Ohio — particularly the Mahoning Valley — the chance to be at the forefront of this revolution.” He concludes that Ohio “cannot afford to miss such opportunities.” 10/2/2019
