Boeing Continues Huge Ohio Impact

One company is buying more than $1 of every $100 worth of goods and services bought in Ohio every year. It's true.

According to recently-released numbers, Boeing continues to be among Ohio's largest consumers.  The Boeing Company bought nearly $4.8 billion (yes, that's a "b") in goods and services from Ohio vendors in 2009.

Despite a decline in the sale of goods and services in Ohio's economy overall, that Boeing total remained nearly unchanged from recent years.  Boeing's huge impact on the Ohio economy continues.

The 2007 Gross Domestic Product of Ohio was $466 billion.  It's likely down in 2009.

Thus, Boeing's buying power represents more than 1% of the Gross Domestic Product of Ohio.

Boeing's impact is huge and that's why we are proud to host Boeing's largest presence in Ohio at the Port Authority-owned Central Ohio Aerospace & Technology Center in Heath.
