Déanann Railside Creations, a d'oscail go luath i 2016 ag cairde Alan Maslar agus Chuck Schilling, píosaí troscáin uathúla agus gabhálais tí ag baint úsáide as adhmad agus miotail. Tagann a n-inspioráid ó dhearadh clasaiceach agus nua-aimseartha, chomh maith leis an áilleacht nádúrtha san adhmad féin. Bhí Maslar roimhe seo ina shaotharlann adhmaid do shiopaí saincheaptha áitiúla ina ndearna sé réimse leathan troscáin, caibinéid, agus obair mhuileann le haghaidh cónaithe só. Is cuid de na speisialtachtaí é coillte coimhthíocha, veneers, agus ga. Bhí Schilling fostaithe ag Cathair na Mentor chun taispeántais agus taispeántais a dhéanamh do aontaí agus Mentor CityFest, agus iad ag tógáil uirlisí ceoil mar chaitheamh aimsire ar an taobh.

Top 3 reasons manufacturers should use inbound marketing to drive leads

Man and woman working at computer station

Industrial manufacturers often discuss the need to use marketing to help increase sales, yet most never pull the trigger.

Gone are the days of winning business strictly through personal relationships or using traditional marketing tactics like high-priced advertisements in trade publications to capture the attention of prospective customers. Today, buyers are in control more than ever, which requires manufacturers to engage with them on the buyers’ terms.

As a B2B marketing agency focused on industrial manufacturing, we’ve found that taking an inbound marketing approach is the most effective ways for a manufacturer to generate qualified sales leads.

According to HubSpot, inbound marketing “focuses on creating quality content that pulls people toward your company and product, where they naturally want to be. By aligning the content you publish with your customer’s interests, you naturally attract inbound traffic that you can then convert, close and delight over time.”

It’s all about ensuring your business can be found easily online, which is accomplished through a blend of content marketing, search engine optimization (SEO), social media, and marketing automation. These efforts, when used in the right way, will turn website traffic into leads and qualified leads into customers.

Here are the top three reasons manufacturers should use inbound marketing:

  1. Your prospective customers already are online researching solutions for their business problems every day. If you’re not there, your competitors are.
  2. There’s no better way to build your credibility and thought leadership than by showcasing what you know. Doing so will earn your audience’s trust while naturally positioning your company’s products as best-in-class.
  3. Qualified leads coming from your website have a higher likelihood to close and become new customers than having your sales team “smile and dial” down a list of purchased contacts.

Because inbound marketing is about attracting – not interrupting – your target market, the more valuable the content, the more engaged your audience will be and the more they will share their information. Building great content, disseminating it via the right mix of marketing communications vehicles and measuring the impact via marketing automation tools will drive real business results for manufacturers who understand the power of marketing.

Point To Point is a premier B2B digital marketing agency focused on accelerating growth through more intelligent customer interactions driven by deep customer insights and data. As a trusted advisor to clients, the company’s cross-functional team brings a unique combination of strategic guidance, creative brilliance, technology innovation and delivery excellence to manage the change and resources to achieve success.

What do Elvis, Jimmy Stewart, John Lennon and Fred Astaire have in common?

Elvis Presley accordionJimmy Stewart AccordionJohn LennonFred Astaire accordion

They all played the accordion! And, so do many folks in Cleveland. What style of music often comes to mind when you think of an accordion? Yep, polka. But, not everyone plays polka on the instrument. It can be used for folk music, classical, and even jazz and blues. We talked to Brian Slosarik of Valley City who not only plays the accordion but he is a collector and is well known for accordion repairs.

How did you get involved with accordions?

I work fulltime in HVAC, worked for a heating company for five years and was a builder prior to that for 10 years. My grandfather played the accordion, and I remember hearing him play when I was younger. I lived in California when I was growing up, and my parents pushed us kids into playing a musical instrument. I chose the accordion at the age of nine. I was taught using the Palmer-Hughes Accordion Course, Book 1-12, and additional sheet music, including classical and overtures. After one year of taking lessons I was entered into accordion competition. I did pretty well, collecting several small trophies and many ribbons during the next few years. I quit at 13 after my parents moved to Connecticut because I couldn’t find a teacher who I felt comfortable with in the area. In 2004, I had an accident working on my house. I was on a scaffold painting gutters, stepped off the side of the scaffold and took 15-foot fall. I broke my left foot and right wrist. Recovery was about four months. My hand was still a problem. I still had my original accordion that my dad bought me in 1960. I picked it up for therapy to be able to get my fingers working again, move my wrist and use my hand. That’s all it took. I got hooked again and started buying them. Most needed repairs; so, I took them all the way to the east side to get repaired. To save money and time, I started reading everything I could find on accordion repairs. With the help of a new accordion friend, I began repairing my own. People found out I could do this, and it snowballed. There are usually six to 10 accordions waiting to be repaired in my second-floor shop. I probably work on more than 100 per year. People drive from Michigan, Pennsylavania and southern Ohio to drop them off and send them via UPS from as far away as California. There aren’t many people in this country doing repairs. I am doing my part to try and keep the instruments going. Accordions really are very fragile and need someone to look after them. I do some traveling to accordion events around the country. My favorite is the Cotati accordion Festival in Cotati, California, in August. I enjoy repairing accordions and meeting all the passionate, nutty enthusiasts. It has become a very enjoyable hobby.

What is your favorite style of music to play?

In this area, most players love and play polkas, waltzes and dance I personally like and play jazz-type music from the 40s on my accordion. Friends in California got me involved in jazz. I was playing my old music when I restarted and got hooked up with Frank Marocco’s arrangements and bought up everything he had produced. His music was my influence, and I play some of his arrangements of French and Italian music jazzed up, blues and tangos.

SANOWhat is your favorite accordion? What makes it so special?

My favorite accordion that I play is a Sano double-tone chamber from the 1950s. The Sano brand was imported into the East Coast. The sound is what makes it special to me. The interior is all made from Mahogany wood. Mahogany has a lot to do with the appealing tonal quality. Jazz boxes are mellower with a deeper bassoon. They have a richer tone that is a bit quitter. Not everyone likes this; therefore, they prefer a brighter, livelier, louder accordion.

How are accordions and/or polka music an important part of Cleveland’s history?

Yankovic started here. The Detroit and Pittsburgh areas also have a big polka following, as does the whole Great Lakes area due to the Slavic people who settled this region.

What words of wisdom do you have for the next generation of aspiring musicians?

I know several younger people who love and play the accordion but who are exclusively playing polkas for entertainment. I encourage them to diversify if they want to continue to play because as their audience ages, they need to appeal to other audiences. Some students who visit me from Oberlin College are playing Irish and Scottish mixed with jazz. In Europe the accordion is very popular. You see people playing on street corners. It is a big part of their heritage. The accordion is showing up in popular bands like Bruce Springsteen’s. And with Paul McCartney, I remember from a few years ago seeing an accordion sitting in the corner of a stage during a New Year’s Eve celebration. The accordion is out there. I feel that as younger people discover it, the accordion will be made to do new and different things.

What kind of tools do you use to repair your accordion?

Small files for tuning, custom-made tools for getting in tight places for adjustments, screwdrivers of all sizes, power tools, a table saw, belt sanders, acetones for celluloid work, sanders, polishers, X-Acto knives, glues. Being a former builder, remodeler and cabinet maker, I’ve always been into tools. Many of my tools show their age from many years of use.

What are some of the problems accordions have that cause them to need repair?

From accidents, bass buttons collapse just from knocking it over on the floor. The more you play, the bellows wear out and need to be replaced or retaped. Scratches and dings. Straps wear out, keyboards get out of adjustment and start getting too much play. Humidity and temperature are terrible on accordions. If they are stored on the floor in a basement they can mold inside. Attics with humidity and heat disintegrate the wax causing the reeds to fall out. Accordions like the same atmosphere and living conditions that people like: 70-75 degrees F. As with most things, accordions can just wear out. If it is a good brand, something special or sentimental, an accordion can be rebuilt to like-new condition. I have restored several during the past 10 years, including some for myself.

How long does it take to repair one? How costly is the repair?

I have repaired as many as five in one weekend if they require minor repairs like a stuck or broken reed or a key is hooked and bent. It can take up to 50 hours of work for a major restoration I find most repairs are in the $100-500 range.

How much do accordions cost, and where do people buy them?

A new, small, Chinese accordion runs $500-600 up to $12,000-15,000 for a top-of-the-line Italian accordion. A new full-sized, standard accordion runs $3,000-5,000, and you can get a good used one for $1,000. There are a few stores on the East and West Coasts and in Michigan that sell new ones. There’s nothing in Ohio that I know of. I can order them new through my connections, and I have almost 200 used accordions in my shop with 30-40 ready to sell at any time. I have four in my personal collection: my grandfather’s last accordion, the one from my childhood, my Sano, and one that is believed to have been owned by Myron Floren from the Lawrence Welk Show. I think picking an accordion is very personal. Everyone has different preferences and taste in how it should feel and sound.

How do you tune an accordion?

There are hundreds of reeds inside, and each reed has two reed tongues. When you pull out and push in the bellows the reed should make the same sound. To change the pitch on a reed you scratch or file the tongue in specific places to raise or lower the pitch. I use, in combination, a computer tuning program and Peterson strobe tuner. It can take up to 12 hours to tune a full-sized accordion; therefore, it is expensive — $500 or more. It is difficult to tune an accordion right to get a proper sound when you are done. It’s an art. What makes it more interesting is the different types of tunings there are: dry or concert tuning, polka, Irish, French, Italian and many more. Without proper training and experience a set of reeds can be ruined real fast in the wrong hands. Most accordions only need to be tuned about every five years if they are played regularly. Your better accordions tend to have better quality reeds. The higher quality reeds will hold a tune longer.

ECS stát-de-an-scoileanna aghaidh a thabhairt ar bhuaicphointí luach eisiúna bannaí

Euclid City Schools Cúnta Ceannfort Charlie Smialek

Ag an Dé Céadaoin, Bealtaine 18,, a tugadh isteach stát-de-an-scoileanna seoladh agus lón ag Euclid High School Euclid Schools Cathrach Cúnta Ceannfort Charlie Smialek dhá juniors High School Euclid a chan "Glóir" le John Legend. An dá bhfuil GPAS de 3.6 nó níos airde agus go bhfuil siad mar chuid den chlár Choláiste Creidmheasa Plus (CCP). Trí CCP, tá siad gach tuillte cheana 15-20 uair an chloig de creidmheasanna i dtreo choláiste.

Smialek láthair ansin méid a iarrann sé, "scéal de inspioráid agus nascáil le chéile mar phobal lena chinntiú go leanaimid orainn de bheith ina rogha oideachasúil inmharthana."
Áirítear Céim I den chlár:
• Freagracht Fioscach (dúnta Páirc Foraoise le trí scoil ina dhá mar gheall ar cheisteanna struchtúrtha agus rollaithe meath chomhdhlúthú)
• gnóthachtáil na Mac Léinn
• Creidiúnacht sa phobal (comhpháirtíochtaí le heagraíochtaí ar nós Lincoln Electric do saotharlann táthú agus Barrachas HGR Tionsclaíoch do chlár róbataic agus scoláireachta)

Luaigh sé go mbeidh clár tech gairme a chur i 2017 chun aghaidh trí mhilliún post déantúsaíochta a bheidh ar oscailt sna blianta 10 romhainn. Táthar ag súil go mbeidh 2 milliún de sin dul gan líonadh. Le cruthú an chláir, tá súil ag an scoil chun freastal ar riachtanais a cuid mac léinn, a dteaghlaigh agus fostóirí ag lorg le haghaidh lucht oibre oilte. Dar le staitistic ina chur i láthair, níl ráta céime 92-faoin gcéad do mhic léinn a bheith rannpháirteach i gcláir ardteicneolaíochta gairme i gcoinne an 70-faoin gcéad ráta céime Euclid High School reatha. I gceist ag an scoil freisin a bheith ag obair le HGR ar a saotharlann foghlama STEM ó leath de na poist ETIM nach n-éilíonn céim agus tuarastal an meán de $ 53,000 íoc.

Cad a thógann sé chun bheith ina cheannaire smaoinimh i mo tionscal?

gheallearbfaidh Ficheall do cheannaireacht smaoinimh

(Le caoinchead Guest Blogger Liz Fox, chomhlachú margaíochta, maighnéad: An Advocacy Déantúsaíochta & Líonra Fás)

I saol na déantúsaíochta, is é an téarma "ceannaireacht smaoinimh" an buzzword riamh i láthair a shíneann tionscal. Daoine a fheictear mar cheannairí smaoinimh go minic labhairt ag comhdhálacha, blogs a chothabháil, agus scríobh go forleathan ar thopaicí a bhaineann leis a lucht éisteachta. Níos tábhachtaí fós, shíl ceannairí gabháil roinnt agus plé ar smaointe a bhfuil tionchar acu na smaointe daoine eile agus cabhrú le daoine rath a bhaint amach.

Ach cad a thógann sé i ndáiríre a athrú féin isteach ina cheannaire shíl? Cé nach dtiocfadh leat a bheith ar an chéad cheann eile Seth Godin nó Jim Tompkins, tá sé indéanta cinnte comhrá a thiomáint agus a tionchar a imirt ar dhaoine tábhachtacha i do thionscal. Is féidir leis an saintréithe seo a leanas cabhrú leat ní hamháin a fheictear mar cheannaire shíl, ach teagmháil a dhéanamh le daoine eile ar leibhéil éagsúla gur féidir thiomáint do chuid smaointe chun tosaigh.

Scéalaíocht Feabhsaithe: Tá scéalta an chéad chéim chun nascadh le do lucht féachana ar leibhéal pearsanta. Tosaigh le Hook, ansin Léim isteach sonraí lena bhraitheann tú go mbainfidh siad freagra a thabhairt. Scéalta ó do shaol féin is minic backdrops chomh mór, tuairisceoirí, agus meafair don teachtaireacht mó d'fhéadfá a bheith ag iarraidh a chur in iúl.

Cáilíocht curating: Thought a fhios ceannairí ábhar mór nuair a fheiceann siad é, agus tá go leor go bhfuil an impulse a roinnt le daoine eile. Smaoinigh ar cad iad na hábhair tábhachtach a thabhairt duit, taighde ansin ar ghnéithe éagsúla acu. A chinneadh a foilseacháin agus foinsí an chuid is mó ábhartha nó inchreidte, iad a chur ansin amach ann don domhan a fheiceáil - beidh sé ach cur le do chreidiúnacht.

Líonraí bunaithe ag: Cé gur féidir do saineolas amháin tábhachtach i gceantair áirithe, a bheith ina cheannaire shíl freisin faoi a fhios agat. Tá sé ríthábhachtach a bheith nasctha le figiúirí tábhachtacha laistigh (agus lasmuigh) do thionscal, mar tá roinnt ar féidir leo cabhrú leat a insint do scéal agus a roinnt do chuid smaointe ar bhealach bríoch. Tar éis an tsaoil, is é seo an fáth go bhfuil LinkedIn agus ardáin meáin shóisialta éirigh chomh maith do cheannairí smaoinimh reatha!

Individualism agus Creidiúnacht: Ní féidir leis an luach na n guth uathúil agus muinín a understated i saol na ceannaireachta smaoinimh. Is cuma do lucht féachana, suíomh, nó fiontar, iompar d'inniúlacht Tá ról ríthábhachtach i fás do bonn tacaíochta. ábhair Tone freisin; mar sin, tá sé molta go bhfaighidh tú cothromaíocht idir bheith relatable agus bheith saineolaí leis na freagraí.

Ag forbairt na cáilíochtaí éilíonn tiomantas ollmhór agus ní féidir teacht go héasca ar roinnt; áfach, is féidir casadh féin isteach ina cheannaire shíl i do thionscal a chumhachtú tú féin agus a chur ar deireadh thiar do chuideachta a airde nua-éireoidh leis.

Market research turns up the strangest things

Can of WD-40

(Courtesy of Guest Blogger Odell Coleman, partner at ColemanWick, a Northeast Ohio research and analytics firm)

You probably know that many of the world’s most famous and widely used brands became successful by accident. Slinky, Silly Putty, potato chips, penicillin, microwave ovens — the list goes on and on. These items were all either by-products of efforts to make something else, or were simply attempts to solve one problem, yet turned out to solve everyday problems around the world.

WD-40 was supposed to just be a solvent for the aerospace industry. It’s now in about four out of five American households. The most amazing thing is its multitude of uses — making bird feeder poles too slippery for squirrels, for example.

Which proves that you never know all the ways a product might be useful beyond its intended purpose.

As a research firm, ColemanWick is in a unique position to observe and become learned across a variety of businesses and industries. Over the years, one of the most interesting things we’ve learned is that there are re-uses for machines and parts beyond sending them to scrap. You might be surprised at how often pieces of equipment, large and small, can be valued by other operations within and without a particular industry.

For instance, we were hired by a nuts and bolts manufacturer to survey its customers and markets in order to help the company gain a better understanding of its B2B buyers. Lo and behold, our work revealed a B2C market that the manufacturer had no idea existed. I don’t have to tell you how thrilled they were to find a new revenue stream.

This case represents good news for anyone with the problem of outdated or irrelevant equipment and the challenge of asset recovery: invest some research bucks to find out who else might put it to good use.

The lesson learned by the nuts and bolts company was that it benefitted from a perspective outside of its own. Companies tend to focus so much on their own operation that they’re blind to opportunities all around them.

In truth, there are many successful companies that recognize that adhering to best practices includes having a dedicated budget for annual research. They know that research experts are bound to uncover surprising data that benefits their enterprise.

I measc roinnt samplaí:

  • Spotting budding industry trends
  • Making informed decisions on markets
  • Understanding your competition

Unlike WD-40, this blog has only one use – to help you understand how, with market research, you can take advantage of other markets, implement new product lines, understand your competition or use existing resources in different ways. These are just some of the many ways research uncovers data that pays for itself many times over.

Oibrithe bhaint ar blade sneachta-aistriú d'aois a chur in ionad le nua, lann ardteicneolaíochta

(Le caoinchead Guest Blogger Patrick Hawkins, uachtarán, Ironhawk Tionscail)

Is Ironhawk Tionscail monaróir agus an dáileoir de táirgí ardteicneolaíochta bhaint sneachta rinneadh i Na Stáit Aontaithe. Tháinig muid go dtí Euclid i 2012 agus tá siad taitneamh as caidreamh iontach leis an chathair agus an pobal gnó áitiúil. Tar éis thosaigh an chuideachta i 2010 déanach, d'fhéach na n-úinéirí ar feadh suíomh a sholáthar spás expandable, rochtain ar bhealaí móra interstate loingseoireachta agus ar an timpeallacht ghnó ceart.

Is Euclid pobal atá suim acu i fás go heacnamaíoch. An méara ar ais go pearsanta ár glaoch fhiosrúcháin tosaigh, agus an Stiúrthóir um Fhorbairt Eacnamaíochta Jonathan Holody cuairt ar ár n-oifigí arís agus arís eile chun cabhrú linn le ag cur aithne ar na hacmhainní atá ar fáil i Euclid. An infheistíocht bonneagair agus tírdhreachú ar E. 222nd Sráid tá sé ina móide fíor chomh maith le seirbhísí na cathrach sofhreagrach.

Déanann Ironhawk lanna ardteicneolaíochta agus imill ghearradh a úsáidtear i ranna stáit 38 iompair do treabhadh agus deisiú bóthair. Ironhawk feidhmíonn freisin an chuid is mó de na bardais i Oirthuaisceart Ohio nuair atá bóithre imréitigh i rith an tséasúir sneachta tábhachtach ag freastal ar a lucht cónaithe agus gnóthaí.

I rith na cúig bliana anuas, tá an chuideachta a fuarthas dhá chuideachta sneachta a bhaineann breise: Sábháilteacht Foinse, á reáchtáil ag Bainisteoir Ginearálta Pat Gavin, agus Elkin, á reáchtáil ag Bainisteoir Ginearálta Eric Fox. Leanann an chuideachta ag fás sa dá shuíomh bhreoslaítear i bpáirt ag straitéis ceannaigh amhábhar, lena n-áirítear chomhdhúile (an dara ach amháin i chruas le diamaint), agus déantúsaíochta a chuid táirgí príomhthionscadal hiomlán i SAM Gach ceann de chuid iomaitheoirí allmhairiú a chomhdhúile ón tSín. Ironhawk bhí in ann a comhpháirtíocht luachmhar le KENNAMETAL áirithiú do chomhdhúile baile agus a chuid táirgí a thairiscint ar chostas níos ísle ná an iomaíocht allmhairithe.

rochtain a fháil ar shaineolas theicniúil is fearr an tionscail gcuid custaiméirí. Ron Abramczyk, cúig bliana Ironhawk fostaí, tháinig ó iomaitheoir áitiúil agus tá 20 bliain de thaithí tionscail. Chuaigh Mike Sparks Ironhawk ndiaidh blianta 30 móide le lanna Bucyrus lonnaithe i Lár Ohio. Elizabeth Dellinger thagann ó chúlra gnólacht dlí Cleveland mór mar chomhpháirtí agus feidhmíonn sé freisin mar oifigeach oibriúcháin príomhoifigeach. Is Rebecca Schaltenbrand aturnae a chleachtadh dlí bardasach sular tháinig sé Ironhawk. Le chéile, cinnteoidh siad go bhfuil Ironhawk i gcomhréir leis na beartais agus na rialacháin stáit.

Tá an fhoireann Euclid chothromú amach le Bainisteoir Díolacháin Brad Toth, Karen Ryan mar Inside Díolacháin agus Bev Franczyk ag an deasc tosaigh. Custaiméirí buíoch as an bhfíric go bhfuil a n-orduithe a líonadh go tapaidh ag an fhoireann agus go bhfaigheann gach ordú glaoch leantach lena chinntiú go bhfuil sé ceart - ní ar an tasc éasca a tugadh go bhfuil na céadta bhfoirmíochtaí céachta agus na mílte uimhreacha chuid ar fud ár tíreolaíocht mór .

Faoi láthair, tá an fhoireann ag obair ar thástáil dhá tháirge breise amháin i SAM Réiteach gcustaiméirí fadhbanna agus an bharainn dollar bhaint sneachta a thiomáint ar ár bhfás. Na lanna ardteicneolaíochta níos faide ná lanna traidisiúnta agus cabhrú le laghdú ar an costas salann, le fada an gcostas is mó i bhaint sneachta. An níos fearr an blade, is amhlaidh is fearr a ghlanadh sneachta, mar sin tá an gá atá le salann breise laghdaithe.

Editor of Fresh Water Magazine sees poetry in machines

Erin O’Brien was deep in her career as a project engineer with BP America. She says it was a lucrative and great career, but all of that changed when her brother, Novelist John O’Brien, known for Leaving Las Vegas, committed suicide. This caused Erin to re-evaluate her life. BP was leaning staff and offered a buyout. Erin says “I didn’t want to sit in an office looking at designs for panel boards for the rest of my life.” In 1995, an author was born.

With no formal training, she tried her hand at fiction and nonfiction but found her calling by working as a journalist. She advises young writers: “Sit in a room and write and write and write.” For her, this philosophy resulted in her first published clip in 2000. She was paid $5 by Ohio Writer Magazine for a 900-word book review. She went on to freelance, including writing features for Uisce úr since its second or third issue in 2010. During that time, she covered brick-and-mortar news and penned profiles for other area magazines on many area manufacturing companies, including Vitamix, OsteoSymbionics, Excelas, Nestle, Ohio Awning and Manufacturing, and Quasar Energy Group. As she talks about how her technical background has helped her as a writer, she relates her experience writing about an anaerobic ingestor that turns organic waste into compressed natural gas, “We have to be a translator and distill technical information into readable, engaging prose. These people work hard and want to tell their stories.”

With an ongoing interest in manufacturing and industry, in 2013, O’Brien visited HGR Industrial Surplus’ showroom where she was profoundly moved because her dad, who died in 2002, was a machinist. In response, she wrote a blog post about HGR that came to the attention of Tina Dick, HGR’s human resources manager. Dick hired O’Brien to put together a amlíne of the company’s historical site for its dedication ceremony. O’Brien also included HGR in a scéal about upcycling resources for local industrial artists. And, she covered HGR’s dedication ceremony do Uisce úr. She says, “HGR is one of my favorite places in Northeast Ohio. It houses machines that represent the Rust Belt. It’s just poetry.”

After working as a feature writer and development news writer with Uisce úr, she recently was promoted to managing editor and has put her freelance activities on hold to focus on the weekly e-magazine. She shares that the magazine’s perspective “is about what’s fresh and new in Cleveland that An Dealer Plain or Cleveland.com are not covering, or about covering those stories from a new angle.” The magazine’s focus is on arts and culture, innovation, human-interest stories. Her vision is “to re-energize the magazine as we travel through 2016, with a keen awareness of the elephants headed this way and that all eyes will be on us this summer. Let’s look gorgeous while everyone is looking at Cleveland, Ohio, and showcase its diversity,” she states.

She sums up with her thoughts on Cleveland’s manufacturing future: “One sector that can’t be denied in Northeast Ohio is the medical sector. We also have housing stock that is affordable. There is a Renaissance that has resulted in low vacancy rates downtown. A lot is percolating. We may not be the blue-collar town that we once were, but I’m excited to see what Cleveland will look like in the next 10 years.”
