Made In Ohio


Made In Ohio is a series of articles built around the idea that the best thing Ohioans can do for Ohio’s economy is to buy products made in Ohio.  Buying from locally-owned, locally-operated companies supports the local economy, keeps Ohioans working, and Ohio thriving.  At Schroer & Sons Contracting, we are proud to install metal roofing products made in Ohio.

In the second installment of our Made in Ohio series, we highlight the Ohio-based Sherwin-Williams.  You can view part 1 here.
