What Bert Has To Say About Cincinnati Metro Area

Cincinnati is a livable city at the crossroads—literally and figuratively—of north and south, east and west, and Old World and New World. Called by some the “northernmost southern city,” it is a transportation and cultural gateway between the industrial North and rural South dating back to Underground Railroad days. The area’s largest industry and employer is Procter & Gamble, with a history that dates back to the city’s early stockyards when soap was made from animal byproducts. Other companies make soap and cosmetic products, while machine tools are another important industry. The area has experienced growth in financial services and in commercial and manufacturing facilities for overseas companies. There are some businesses supporting the auto industry, but the area’s economy has been less susceptible to disruptions from that industry, and is in good shape for a Midwestern city.
