Ohio's Advanced Materials Hub of Innovation

Heading north from Interstate 70 along State Route 79 is the largest manufacturing corridor in Central Ohio.  Many people know that.

Did you know the amazing things happening in the Corridor though?

Here's three more to add to the long, growing list of advanced materials processes that make 79|Seventy Ohio's hub of innovation for advanced materials.

Bayer MaterialScience has been in Licking County for over 30 years.  At their product development center in the Newark Ohio Industrial Park in Hebron, you can walk in with a concept in the morning and walk out with a prototype and the first polybag of plastic resin ready to produce the first product.

Just up the street is Momentive Performance.  This former GE quartz plant provides the high end of the solar module and chip industries' value chain.  Highly-engineered silicon crucibles are manufactured in a clean room environment at Momentive's Hebron plant.

Kaiser Aluminum Fabricated Products has a niche in hard alloy alluminum manufacturing.  It's one of a kind.  The last hot roll aluminum operation of its kind left in the world is inside Kaiser's plant at the Aerospace Center in Heath. 

It's easy to see that 79|Seventy has long-ago earned the title of Ohio's hub of innovation for advanced materials.
