CLEVELAND, Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- NineSigma, Inc., of Cleveland, the leading innovation partner to organizations worldwide, announced today they will work with Cleveland, OH-based Oatey Co. under the Ohio Third Frontier Open Innovation Incentive (OII) Program. NineSigma was awarded a grant by the State of Ohio to help middle market companies, with revenues between $10 million and $1 billion, accelerate time to market and reduce development costs through open innovation. The Ohio Third Frontier OII Program was established to foster growth that will lead to job creation and build a competitive advantage for Ohio companies.
A leader in the plumbing industry since 1916, Oatey manufactures and distributes an unmatched array of more than 6,000 plumbing products. Its stable of brands includes Hercules® plumbing chemicals, Cherne® underground and testing equipment, Dearborn® tubular and bath waste products, in addition to its own Oatey-brand of plumbing supplies.
