The area is located within a 600-mile radius of 50 percent of the nation's population; 60 percent of the United States bank deposits and product value; over half of the U.S. effective buying income; and 74 percent of the top 1,000 U.S. corporate headquarters.

Moreover, Northeastern Ohio is served by over 250 trucking lines; three airports offering full domestic and international service; and five major world ports providing a gateway to markets throughout America and Europe.
