Ohio continues to be a crucial manufacturing state, according to a report released Monday from an Indiana university.

Ball State University’s 2013 Manufacturing and Logistics Report Card grades states on factors that impact manufacturing and logistics performance.

According to the report’s synopsis, Ohio received “A” grades in manufacturing, logistics, and global reach, a “C-” in human capital and tax climate, a “D” in worker-benefit costs, a “C+” in diverse sectors, and a “C” in productivity and innovation.

The report said that Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan, Indiana, and Ohio “form the backbone of America’s manufacturing heartland.”
