Advanced Materials & Manufacturing

Dayton has a rich tradition of manufacturing excellence. The industry has continued to thrive through changing times. It has emerged stronger, faster, and more technologically sophisticated than ever before. Dayton is also known for innovations in advanced materials including composites and nano-materials.

In Dayton, Composite Advantage recently expanded into a second facility in order to accommodate their continued growth with the help of a grant from the City. The company produces large composite products for key infrastructure projects like roads and bridges. They got their start nearby at the National Composite Center.

The talented workforce at Dayton's collaborative centers such as the Air Force Research Labs (AFRL) and the University of Dayton Research Institute (UDRI) provide access to breakthrough products and high-tech laboratory space for local businesses.

The City's incentive programs can help you make the investments you need to succeed.
