YOUNGSTOWN -- White House officials have announced an initial $30 million investment to form a manufacturing hub in Ohio aimed at boosting technology in a three-state region.
The Obama Administration announced details Thursday of a partnership among dozens of companies, universities, and nonprofit organizations in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. Its main hub in Youngstown is set to launch by September.
The consortium will develop additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing.
The pilot program beat out proposals from other regions.
