Union County is located within the Columbus, Ohio metropolitan area, one of the most dynamic, diverse, and fastest growing metropolitan areas in the United States. The Columbus Region is known internationally for its talented workforce, access to the global market, and forward-thinking initiatives, such as the Smart Columbus initiative.
Union County is an excellent and affordable location to live and conduct business. With a strong emphasis on economic diversification, entrepreneurship, collaboration, and responsible governing, Union County has emerged as the center of growth and development in the Columbus Region.
Manufacturing and Research & Development (R&D) are two of Union County’s most dominant industry sectors. As manufacturers rely on R&D to develop the next generation of technologies, it is critical for our community to foster a productive and attractive environment for manufacturers by reversing off-shoring of technological services and supporting the co-location of manufacturing and innovation.
Many of Union County’s major manufacturers bundle innovation and production activities locally. This has led to the formation of a growing R&D cluster in Union County over the last several years. In fact, Union County is now among the top producers of patents in Central Ohio.
