The Dayton Region specializes in scientific breakthroughs that work their way into the everyday fabric of our world. Every time you board an airplane, start your car, or pop open a can of craft beer, you connect to the Dayton Region’s culture of innovation. We dream big, then we find a way to make that dream come alive. We once built it from wood and fabric; today we build it from advanced composites and carbon fiber. We create a network of fiber and data like no other in the world.
