MRI Software is located in Solon, OH, a suburb of Cleveland, a lynchpin of the American Rust Belt. Long a stalwart home to companies like Republic Steel, the Eaton Corporation and Sherwin-Williams, Cleveland hit hard times along with American manufacturing, and with several highly visible newsworthy embarrassments occurring during the second half of the 20th century (like the 1966 Hough riots and the Cuyahoga River fire of 1969), cities like Cleveland, Pittsburgh and Detroit became punchlines, especially as far as new industry and growth were concerned. Most recently, Detroit itself has filed for federal bankruptcy. But something funny happened on the way to economic purgatory: a commercial reinvestment movement evolved in the Rust Belt. To be more precise, several movements exist, each of which supports the commercial revitalization of this region. Let’s take MRI’s hometown, Cleveland, as an example.
