Akron, Ohio: a city within 500 miles of 42 major U.S. cities, and adjacent to over 30,000 acres of National Parks. The world’s premiere polymer science university and the world’s fastest and tallest roller coasters in your backyard. The highest city in the state (Akron, roughly translated, is Greek for “summit”) and one of the lowest costs of living.

PTA Engineering is proud to call Akron its home. We are located minutes from I-77 in the heart of the Montrose district, a regional destination for shopping, dining and commerce. Akron is home to the newly renovated Akron Art Museum, the National Inventor’s Hall of Fame, Stan Hywet Hall and Gardens, the All-American Soap Box Derby, and Firestone Country Club, home of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.
