We Are Number 11

The latest from Joel Kotkin for Forbes ranks U.S. cities on manufacturing growth.  The "Where Manufacturing is Thriving in the U.S." piece has news close to home. We're Number 11.

By we, I mean Columbus, a region of which our Port Authority is a part.

With the Port Authority at the heart of the largest manufacturing corridor in this region, it's easy to take hand and pat on back for this improving ranking.

In fact, we recently won an international project against the #1 city on the list that could help our region's rankings in the future.

The piece points out that the northern part of the New American Heartland pulled more than its weight in the latest rankings too, saying, "Nine of this year's top 10 regions for manufacturing job growth are in red states."  They could have said 10 of the top 11 for that matter.
