What Bert Has To Say About Dayton Metro Area


Dayton, at the crossroads of southwestern Ohio’s major transportation routes, has a distinct industrial heritage. Local NCR Corporation, formerly the National Cash Register Corporation, is a leader in retail information technology and ATM machines. The area has a strong heritage of innovation, and has attracted a number of other high tech businesses in recent years. An assortment of other manufacturing and service activities, some tied to the auto and paper industry, round out the diverse economy. An old GM site along the river is being repurposed, with the help of state funds, into a “Tech Town” high tech campus – interesting if it works out.
