Real Change 2012 - 2022

Ohio may not have a passenger train system in the 2010s, but Governor John Kasich and the businesses of the state are bringing back jobs that were outsourced prior to 2010.

Another priority is the growing of the oil, natural gas, and aerospace sectors of Ohio Industry. With these growth areas comes additional increase in Information Technology (IT) jobs as well and according to some news sources, Cloud Computing is one of the next big sectors to demand trained workers.

In addition, discrepancies, poor data, and questionable academic results among K-12 schools in the Buckeye State are being handled swiftly with corrections and warranted personnel changes. Effective education for equipping Ohio youth to handle new jobs in the near furture is of utmost importance. The 2012 discovery, then, that school personnel were dis-enrolling and re-enrolling students in ways that bypassed Standardized Testing failure (low score) accumulations was met head on for the good of students and ultimately, business. School Year 2012 - 2013 was to be free of these machinations.

The information below describes the industrial growth areas of the State of Ohio, with a discussion of 500 returning jobs at the end of this Hub.

Columbus, Ohio in the representation below is not an official part of the Ohio Space Corridor, although it may become such in the 2010s. Columbus is home to several facilities that are involved in the Aerospace Industry and related Information Technology (IT), related electrical component manufacture, related research projects, as well as others. Professor/Senator/Colonel John Glenn, former astronaut, maintains an office and class schedule at The Ohio State University in Columbus.

Many aerospace companies in the state are located outside of the Ohio Space Corridor as well (see list below).

Made In America

Ohio Manufacturing Boost

The Longaberger company often holds it conventions in Columbus, Ohio and we hear about specific sales awards given via the local News Radio broadcasts. On Friday 08/03/12, the leadership announced sales records for the year and were happy about the expansion of their customer base in home furnishings and related retail. They also announced the return of 500 jobs to Ohio that had previously been outsourced overseas. This is a boot to Ohio manufacturing that adds to new jobs already emerging in aerospace components and automotive parts and components.

As thrilling as the jobs announcement sounded, the process of bringing back lost jobs would be delayed somewhat by the need to install new pottery kilns at Longaberger. You see, they'd never had kilns before, relying on other companies for pottery to sell. However, the 500 jobs to come to Ohio outnumber the company's 2009 layoffs by 200 positions. The prospect of more jobs and Ohio-made pottery enhanced the company's Made In America image. This is expressly gratifying, given the history of pottery making in Eastern Ohio.

Natural gas is becoming less expensive in Ohio in the early 2010s, so gas-powered kilns in Dresden are a cost-saving idea. As a reference, Columbia Gas announced that monthly Budget Gas account averages would reduce by $9.00/month for the 2012 - 2013 heating season. At the same time, Longaberger leaders heard reports of government mandated wage increases in China that would cut company profits if their pottery manufacturing jobs were kept in that country. It makes sense in several ways to return to Ohio.

Job outsourcing for pottery items was done by Ohio pottery manufacturers from whom Longaberger bought products; the pottery manufacturing in Dresden will be new. Related to that, customers will likely surge into the store at Longaberger Homestead to purchase the additional Made In America goods sometime in 2013.

The pottery industry has been a major economic contributor to Eastern Ohio for hundreds of years. My father worked in the pottery factory in Cambridge while he attended high school and worked on his dad's farm. I think pottery was his favorite job and he made friends there, working himself up to a crew leader type of position. Many of the local farm families sent someone to work in that factory over the decades.

Other business besides baskets and pottery:

  • Longaberger Golf Club - An award-winning, daily-fee course at Licking/Muskingum County line. Golf Digest's annual ranking of the Best 100 Public Golf Courses placed it at Number 56 for 2011 - 2012. Previously, it had ranked near the bottom.
  • Newark Metropolitan Hotel - Not owned by Longaberger, but this hotel opened in early August 2012 near the golf course, offering golfing packages at Longaberger Golf Club.
  • The Inn at Dresden - Located in the birthplace of company founder David Longaberger (1934 - 1999), whose father worked for the Dresden Basket Company until it closed during The Great Depression. 209 Ames Drive - Dresden, Ohio (OH) 43821. Toll Free Phone: 1 (800) DRESDEN.
