MAGNET’S 2018 Northeast Ohio Manufacturing Survey Summary

The Ohio Manufacturing Extension Partnership organization known as MAGNET (Manufacturing Advocacy and Growth Network) recently surveyed 400 Northeast manufacturers across a broad range of subjects. It said: “The survey definitively shows that product innovation leads to more growth, while “grow your own workforce” strategies will be needed to fill the major labor shortages hampering small manufacturer growth. Emerging technologies like the Internet of Things (IoT), 3D printing, and digital manufacturing are beginning to enhance innovation and productivity, but still have significant room for adoption amongst Ohio’s small manufacturing businesses.”
