Ohio Manufacturing Institute


The Ohio Manufacturing Institute (OMI) serves as a public policy mechanism for manufacturing within the state and nationally that facilitates the use of technology integration and workforce development resources for economic development.

OMI’s state and national policy recommendations reflect a thoughtful and sustained response to industry-led and vetted problems and issues. We also engage in Industry 4.0 digital transformation and educational outreach programs that support manufacturers—from small to medium-size firms to original equipment manufacturers—by aligning industries, academic institutions, technology support organizations and government.
