The aerospace, medical and automotive industries’ never-ending quest for lighter, cheaper and faster manufactured parts has created a boom in the 3D printing world. And Northeast Ohio is well-positioned to take advantage of the technical advancements happening in this field.

“It’s important to note that these same driver industries for additive manufacturing are legacy strengths for Northeast Ohio,” said Youngstown Business Incubator CEO Barb Ewing. “That gives us an important economic base to build upon.”


“Ewing and many other regional economic-development leaders are currently working to establish an innovation cluster for additive manufacturing in Northeast Ohio, the goal of which is to turn the region into the epicenter for additive manufacturing in the United States.”
