Cleveland Plastics

With a prime location on the southern shore of Lake Erie, Cleveland, OH became a major manufacturing hub in the 1800s. Because it was connected to numerous canals and railroad lines, the city’s economy was very reliant on steel production. In the last hundred years, the city’s economy diversified to include financial services, biomedicals and healthcare. The Cleveland Clinic is a renowned institution for its technological management systems and superior care.
