“With manufacturing on the rebound and such a strategic growth industry in our region, it is important to recognize [the manufacturing] industry in our area,” said the Dayton Business Journal in a statement. It noted that manufacturing is critical to the Dayton region because it represents 100,000 jobs and accounts for tens of billions of dollars in annual sales in the 12-county region surrounding Dayton, according to a Wright State University study commissioned by the Dayton Region Manufacturers Association.
