To bring new ideas to life requires experienced engineers and technicians, as well as opportunities to test and revise your design; then test and revise it again.
These opportunities are plentiful in the automotive industry clusters in the FirstEnergy region, particularly in Ohio and Pennsylvania. Here you will find designers, engineers and technicians with the best training, suppliers conveniently nearby, and prospective customers in your neighborhood. These are well-established clusters, with generations of workers who know the automotive market. There are manufacturers representing the entire supply chain, from controls and electronics through the powertrain, body and final assembly. In Ohio alone, there are 24 automotive manufacturers, including nine OEMS; 95 body and trailer manufacturers; and 479 automotive parts manufacturers.
