Ohio is the birthplace of aviation and the Cincinnati region was home to Neil Armstrong, the first man on the moon. So, it’s no coincidence that our region is home to numerous aerospace companies. With hundreds of Tier 1 and Tier 2 aerospace suppliers located within the region or nearby in Dayton, companies in Cincinnati can maintain a strong network of partners for long-term success. Fueling that success is a concentration of production talent, aerospace engineering education, and exiting military talent that will help your business soar.
