Akron’s history as the rubber capital of the world has shaped the economy of the city today. Akron is home to 17,000 polymer related companies and The College of Polymer Science and Engineering at The University of Akron is ranked among the top three in the world. Akron is also home to Signet Jewelers, the world’s largest jewelry retailer. Signet Jewelers has 3,500 stores under several banners including Kay Jewelers, Zales, and Jared The Galleria of Jewelry. Over 100 foreign-owned companies are located in Greater Akron, one of the largest international hubs in the Midwest.
In terms of the housing market in Akron, national magazines and websites, such as Forbes and CNN Money, are recognizing Akron as one of America’s most affordable cities in which to buy a home. In the past 5 years, nearly all market indicators in the Akron housing market are trending up. Downtown Akron’s future is a mixed-use residential center, rather than as an office center.
Amazon.com, Inc. announced plans in July of 2019 to open two new Ohio fulfillment centers, one in Akron and the other in Rossford, creating more than 2,500 full-time jobs with comprehensive benefits and opportunities to work alongside Amazon robotics in an industry-leading workplace.
An Amazon presence in Ohio means more than just the jobs provided within the fulfillment center’s four walls. In addition to full-benefit, great jobs inside its buildings, the company has brought thousands of jobs in construction and services. Since 2010, Amazon has invested more than $5 billion in the state through its customer fulfillment and cloud infrastructure, and compensation to its employees. Using methodology developed by the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, Amazon estimates its investments in the state have created an additional 19,000 indirect jobs on top of the company’s direct hires.
