DAYTON — Advanced manufacturing and aerospace businesses, such as a research facility General Electric wants to build locally, are key to the Dayton region’s economic recovery, U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown told students and college officials Wednesday.

“Our future is to build things,” Brown, D-Ohio, said during a visit to Dayton-area colleges.

Brown attended a closed-door meeting with GE representatives and University of Dayton officials who want the company to build an aerospace research lab on land the school owns close to campus.

The company also is considering property in Vandalia, where it owns an electric power systems plant, but Brown says regardless of where the plant locates it is the kind of win the Dayton area needs.
