Manufacturers could benefit from increased natural gas production in Ohio

A June 20, 2011 article in Crain's Cleveland Business reports that increased Marcellus and Utica shale development could be a boon for Ohio manufacturers.  The article highlights the impact of shale development on the natural gas supply chain, focusing on businesses in northeast Ohio, such as Fairmount Minerals, Chart Industries Inc. and Carlisle Brake and Friction.  As Walter Good, the VP of economic development for the Youngstown/Warren Regional Chamber of Commerce states in the article, "[w]e see this as a transformational opportunity, not only for direct job creation and investment, but to reposition Northeast Ohio as a producer of products for this industry."
