The Research Office of the Ohio Development Services Agency has issued its most recent compendium of products made in Ohio.

Begun as far back as 2010, the July 2017 listing shows an increasing number of products which are exclusively Buckeye-made.

According to the ODSA report,

“By and large, the largest numbers of things made in Ohio are parts and components that go into another product. For example, Dana Corporation with headquarters in Toledo, produces hundreds of plastic and metal parts that go into the assembly of motor vehicles by General Motors, Ford and Chrysler. In addition to Ohio’s integral role in parts manufacturing, there are a number of products both consumer and industrial that Ohio based manufacturers make.”

The report then outlines some 355 identified products that meet this criterion. To be listed, each product must be assembled in Ohio, and also be marketed on a regional, nationwide, or international basis. The products are sorted by type and location.

Richland County was represented by three such Ohio-made products:

  • Jones’ Potato Chips from Jones’ Potato Chips in Mansfield
  • Hinges by Mansfield Engineered Components in Mansfield
  • Stoneridge Brand Power Distribution Products by Stoneridge Inc. in Lexington

Ashland County, on the other hand, had the following products listed:

  • Archway Brand Cookies by Snyder’s-Lance in Ashland
  • Barbasol Shaving Cream by Perio, Inc. in Ashland
  • Novatex Pacifiers by Novatex GmbH in Ashland
  • Mansfield Toilets by Organizacion CORONA in Perrysville
  • Step2 Toys by Aterian Investment Partners in Perrysville
