“Northwest Ohio is one of the top 10 growing metros in the U.S., so there’s a lot of good things going on here, and with that brings a lot of talent and skilled labor.”

– Lou Razzano, executive vice president, Interstate Chemical

Northwest Ohio’s robust energy industry starts with a highly trained and educated workforce which is supported by a university system offering some of the top collegiate engineering programs that produce ready-to-work talent. Along with four oil refineries located within two hours of each other, Northwest Ohio offers a growing pipeline network for petroleum products and natural gas, with links to the Gulf Coast, Canada, and Marcellus and Utica Shale. Consistent, high demand for energy producers and material suppliers is fueled by the polymer, chemical and manufacturing strength in the state.
