Our Mission

The mission of the Ohio Manufacturing Institute (OMI) is to make the technical resources of The Ohio State University easily accessible to industry and to facilitate their use for economic development.

OMI provides manufacturers a quick and cost-effective mechanism to collaborate with OSU, including testing, development, applied research, and manufacturing process support. This is achieved by teaming industry needs with Ohio State University assets such as faculty and researcher expertise, student engagement, and access to university labs and test equipment.
