Crossroads of the Auto Supply Chain
Eastern and southern Ohio are home to more than 40 production facilities directly engaged in the automotive industry, including Tier One and Tier Two auto suppliers and a major Kenworth truck assembly plant.
Less than one day’s drive to major auto assembly plants in Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Pennsylvania, Kentucky and Tennessee, the APEG region is the right location for companies that supply to the automobile and truck industries.
US Route 23 travels approximately 1400 miles from northern Michigan through the APEG region on its way to northern Florida. As it travels through the region it provides easy access to a number of US automotive assembly plants — four in Kentucky, twelve in Michigan, four in Indiana and six in Ohio. The route is a primary commerce highway in the US with excellent connectivity north, south, east and west. The APEG region is also home to a major aerospace corporation with state-of-the-art testing facilities.
