WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT DOING BUSINESS IN OHIO?
Ohio, the “Birthplace of Aviation.” What better state to have an aviation related business! Ohio is a state heavily involved in the automotive business and being located in Northwestern Ohio we are close to the Michigan automotive business as well. This industry brings business aviation opportunities to shops like ours with corporate aircraft flying into the airport and on-demand air cargo shipment of parts into the automotive manufacturing facilities located in Ohio. There is also the high volume of great colleges and universities that become a reservoir of engineering talent both full time and intern employment.
In addition Ohio is a business friendly state with labor laws that are fair to both the employee and the employer.
