Featured businesses are part of the “Made in Ohio” theme 

COLUMBUS – Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted today announced that as part of an ongoing effort to recognize the impact of Ohio businesses, October’s Ohio Business Profile highlights Ohio’s strong manufacturing roots, featuring companies under the theme “Made in Ohio.” Ohio ranks third in the country in manufacturing and the Ohio General Assembly recently dedicated October as Manufacturing Month in Ohio.  

“Manufacturing is an important industry for our state that provides good paying jobs for hard working Ohioans and helps to build up and strengthen our economy,” Secretary Husted said. “These companies show that Americans still make high-quality and innovative products we use every day.”

Companies profiled this month include:

  • Nidec Minster CorporationMinster, Ohio – A world-class supplier of material forming equipment and services. Founded in 1896, it is one of the longest continually operating manufacturers in Ohio.
  • Shoot-A-WayUpper Sandusky, Ohio – They supply basketball shooting aides to coaches and players around the world. Their shooting machines, known as “The Gun,” are used by nearly every college in the country and the USA Olympic basketball team.
  • Milacron LLC Cincinnati, Ohio – A world leader in the development of plastics processing machinery. Founded in 1884, they currently employ nearly 1,000 workers in southwest Ohio.
  • Classic Metal Roofing Systems Piqua, Ohio – Manufactures residential and commercial metal roof systems that help increase a home’s beauty, value and energy efficiency. Their roofs can be found on Pizza Huts, Dairy Queens and Dunkin’ Donuts stores around the country.

Launched in June 2011, Ohio Business Profile has helped raise awareness about companies registered and doing business in Ohio that are creating interesting products, offering outstanding service, contributing to their local communities and employing Ohioans in the process. Each month, a handful of diverse businesses linked together by a common theme are featured on the Secretary of State’s website at OhioBusinessProfile.com, where Ohioans are encouraged to go to submit companies they feel are deserving of recognition in future months.

Secretary Husted’s office also releases a monthly report of new business filings in Ohio. Recent data has shown that the number of newly-registered businesses in Ohio is up for the year as compared to the same timeframe last year.
