Semiconductors

A competitive advantage for semiconductor supply chain growth.

The Northeast Ohio Region semiconductor industry chips away at the competition.

Semiconductor industry growth is easy in the Northeast Ohio Region. Here, you’ll find the resources to promote expansion for chip designers, materials suppliers, equipment manufacturers, chip foundries/FABs, and assembly, packaging, and testing. Businesses here enjoy comparatively low costs for labor, energy, and construction; low risk of disruptive natural disasters; plus, a central location, top-ranked infrastructure, and a pipeline of available sites that help increase companies’ speed to market. Northeast Ohio is also adjacent to Lake Erie – part of the largest fresh surface water system on earth – ensuring fresh water supply is reliable, abundant, and cost effective. 

Northeast Ohio offers a workforce of approximately 2 million, with 25-plus higher education institutions facilitating talent solutions, and a track record of success connecting businesses to emerging talent.  We also have a proven ability to attract residents from outside the region, with nationally renowned amenities and a comparably low cost of living

Ohio, which will soon be home to the world’s largest and most advanced semiconductor facilities, offers a simplified tax structure, with no state corporate income or profits tax, no tax on products sold outside of Ohio, no state tax on machinery and equipment investments and no state tax on R&D investments. The state regularly receives top rankings for business climate, overall projects, and projects per capita.

Industries that rely on semiconductor technology – from automotive and aerospace to biohealth – thrive in the Northeast Ohio Region.
