“Lima’s location along two major highways and our trained workforce are key factors in securing our position among the top manufacturing cities in the U.S,” said Dave Stratton, President/CEO of Allen Economic Development Group. “The collaboration between private business, government, and education entities ensures companies can meet the challenges they face. Our largest companies continue to thrive and expand and new companies are attracted to the Allen County region. Working cooperatively with the Regional Growth Partnership and JobsOhio teams has been and will continue to be a major factor in our success.”
