OEV has actively attracted companies whose research, development, and manufacturing divisions rely on High-Temperature Superconducting (HTS) technology. HTS has several innovative applications, such as fusion energy transmission, medical imaging, transportation, and scientific research, all of which align with OEV’s target industry focus.
As home to the leading authority on HTS magnets, Tallahassee-Leon County is poised to become a hub for the global HTS magnetics economy. Major companies in HTS technologies have taken notice of this strategic advantage and are drawn to the potential for growth and collaboration.
OEV helped to organize a 'Superconductivity Summit' that allowed four of these firms to explore the abundant resources and numerous benefits that make Tallahassee-Leon County a prime destination for business. Company representatives met with key stakeholders, including community leaders and industry experts, to assess the feasibility of establishing a presence in our area.
As the Magnetic Capital of the World, we solidify our reputation as a leading innovation hub by drawing in cutting-edge research, cultivating industry collaboration, and positioning ourselves as a premier global destination for advancements in magnetic technologies.
