Magnet Strengthens its Rubber City Ties

Crain's Cleveland Business
Magnet, the Manufacturing Advocacy and Growth Network, may be based in Cleveland, but the organization is charged with supporting manufacturers throughout Northeast Ohio. In the past year, the group has taken steps to strengthen its services in the Summit County area, and it now has officially opened an office in Akron. 
Magnet is a Manufacturing Extension Partnership center, which means it's part of a national network focused on serving small and midsize manufacturers.  At current, Magnet serves manufacturers in 18 counties in Northeast Ohio. Darlyn McDermott came to Magnet from Oswald Cos. about a year ago to start working as the market leader for what she calls Magnet South, which focuses on manufacturers in Summit, Stark, Wayne, Medina and Portage counties. Magnet South also serves companies in Mahoning and Columbiana counties.
