New Facility Supports Cornerstone’s Commercialization Push

Cornerstone Research Group (CRG) announced a proposal to expand its current operations to a new facility while expecting to create 250 new jobs in the Dayton Region. The company’s expansion initiative would open new opportunities for a variety of high-skilled jobs in the Dayton Region including software developers, aerospace engineers, electrical engineers, composite engineers, chemists, and manufacturing personnel.


For over 20 years, Cornerstone Research Group has been trusted to provide innovative technology solutions to solve some of the nation’s most challenging defense and aerospace problems. Founded in 1997 the small business has rapidly grown through strategic partnerships and advanced innovative technologies to deliver solutions for a large variety of applications including carbon composites, advanced batteries and power systems, electric propulsion and unmanned air vehicles. While staying true to the company’s core values, their multidisciplinary team of scientists, engineers, and manufacturers have redefined what is possible in delivering new capabilities to the warfighter. Cornerstone Research Group and its subsidiaries are in Dayton, Ohio.


“The rapidly evolving Department of Defense acquisition landscape is creating significant opportunity for Cornerstone Research Group and the Dayton Region.  With multiple technology products progressing towards procurement, we are excited to work with the Dayton Development Coalition, JobsOhio, and partners throughout the state to rapidly develop and deliver new capabilities to the warfighter and contribute to the success of the Dayton Region,” said Chris Hemmelgarn, Vice President of Strategic Relations at Cornerstone Research Group. “This new facility will allow us to expand our manufacturing footprint for advanced defense products and create more opportunity for the region.” 


The Dayton Region’s strong defense infrastructure, paired with its expertise in advanced manufacturing, gives Cornerstone Research Group an ideal location for commercialization. A robust workforce and a network of support organizations that understand the unique challenges of defense firms stand ready to support their growth. 

“Cornerstone Research Group represents a true Dayton Region success story. For over 20 years, their cutting-edge research has helped protect our military and defend American values across the globe,” said Amy Schrimpf, Project Manager and Government Relations Director for the Dayton Development Coalition. “Our region has had a critical role in our country’s defense for more than 100 years, and Cornerstone continues that strong tradition into the future. We’re thrilled they plan to continue to grow in the region and look forward to supporting them as their project moves forward.”
