What makes Columbus such a great place to do business?
There is a terrific work-force pipeline produced by the 100,000-plus graduate students in the area at Ohio State University and 54 other colleges in the region. And with such a diverse economy of retail, apparel, and manufacturing industries, combined with a central location (10-hour drive from almost 50% of U.S. markets), the Columbus Region is an ideal location for supply chain and distribution operations and facilities.
