JobsOhio has released its 2019 Annual Report and 2020 Strategic Plan. New payroll stemming from JobsOhio projects was $1.2 billion in 2019 — down slightly from $1.3 billion in 2018 — as 306 projects led to $7 billion of capital investment, down from $9.6 billion. In the category of “advanced manufacturing,” JobsOhio projects yielded 3,163 new jobs and $657 million in capital investment.
As the last decade ended, Ohio claimed the second-highest advanced manufacturing location quotient in the region — more than two times the U.S. industry concentration, the report says. 3/2/2020
