The Buckeye Opportunity

Buckeye country has never been a “flyover country” to us.  Our ancestors have lived through non-stop innovation since Ohio was populated.  Agriculture, oil, steel, rubber, polymers, retail, consumer packaged goods, insurance, pharmaceuticals, military, space and communications.  Those flying over have forgotten that Ohio and Buckeyes have been the creators or part of the great waves of innovation that have made our country the greatest innovative force the world has ever experienced.
