The Ohio Energy and Advanced Manufacturing Center (OEAMC) is a research and development technology testbed. The ability to partner with some of our countries’ major universities and national labs is very important to our success. Of the top 100 universities in the world, 56 are in North America and 12 are in the Great Lakes region. This means over 20 percent of North America’s top 100 global educational institutions are located within driving distance of Lima/Allen County.


The OEAMC is a 501c3 tax-exempt, nonprofit R&D Center dedicated to pursuing industry-driven R&D as a deliberate economic development strategy. The goal of their activities is to facilitate game changing collaborations that will generate new capital investment and job creation in this region, the State of Ohio, and the nation.

In 2014, the OEAMC constructed a 20,000 square foot Research and Development Center in Lima, Ohio. The purpose of the center is to foster collaborations with companies wishing to implement new metal forming technologies into their existing plants.

In March of 2015, the OEAMC was one of only twelve organizations in the United States awarded a U. S. Department of Commerce, Economic Development Administration (EDA), Regional Innovation Strategies Grant (RIS). Utilizing those grant funds and other resources, the OEAMC has begun implementing activities dedicated to the commercialization of High Velocity Metal Forming (HVMF) in the United States. The very latest in high-tech metal forming equipment has been purchased and installed. Partnerships with the Oak Ridge National Lab, the Ohio State University, the Ohio Fuel Cell Coalition and the U.S. Department of Energy have been established.
