Site Selection Ranks Ohio’s Business Climate Third Overall


Ohio finished third overall in Site Selection’s annual ranking of state business climates. Georgia and North Carolina were numbers one and two. Fifty percent of the ranking is based on a survey of site selectors – corporate facility investors and site consultants — who indicate simply which states they deem to be the most business friendly. That’s the subjective part. The other 50 percent — the objective side — is a combination of factors primarily based on announced project data that resides in the Conway Projects Database which credits areas with corporate facility projects of at least $1 million in capital investment, 20 or more new jobs or new construction of at least 20,000 sq. ft.  11/3/2016
