What Bert Has To Say About Springfield Metro Area


Springfield is strategically located between Dayton and Columbus on or near major east-west and north-south transportation routes serving the country. The city has a strong industrial heritage, at one time being a manufacturing center for automobiles and farm implements before that industry concentrated into just a few players. Big employers today include Navistar International and Honda, and an assortment of smaller manufacturing, food processing and distribution enterprises.
