Every year, the magazine surveys site selectors—the people who help companies decide where to build new facilities—to get their take on how easy or hard it is to do business in each state. Then it rates the states by tallying up manufacturing plant openings and new expansions of other corporate facilities.
Ohio tied Georgia for sixth nationally.
Ohio came in No. 1 nationwide in new plant rankings and third in new plants per million residents. The state finished seventh in competitiveness and 14th in the executive survey of overall business climate.
North Carolina finished first for the ninth time in the past 10 years. Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and South Carolina rounded out the top five.
Final note: High rankings on “best of” lists like this are great recruiting tools when you’re looking for new employees.
