A new industrial revolution is under way. Call it the New Manufacturing Economy. In this economy, one region stands out: a slice of Northwestern Ohio that encircles Toledo.

The Toledo region has been at the heart of industrial activity since it was founded as a terminus of the Miami & Erie Canal, later becoming a key railway center between New York and Chicago, and then a cornerstone of the automobile industry. From research to design to manufacturing and logistics, the Toledo region continues to build on its manufacturing traditions while providing the resources new economy entrepreneurs require. Bolstered by the intellectual muscle of educational institutions like the University of Toledo and Bowling Green State University, and business assistance available through both public and private organizations, the region retains manufacturing traditions like Jeeps and glass while speeding ahead as a leader in high-tech sectors like the solar industry.

But the Toledo region is more than a good place to build a business. A host of recreational and artistic attractions -- as well as the same confluence of river and lake that made the region a transportation and logistics hub -- make it a scenic and cultural jewel. No wonder generations of Ohioans have chosen to strike deep, lasting roots there and why residents continue to call the region "home."
