Akron, Ohio, was founded in 1825. The city doubled in population with industrializaton in the early 1900’s. The tire and rubber industry flourished in the 20th century, especially with Akron’s contributions to the war effort in World War II and Akron became known as the “Rubber Capital of the World.” Corporations such as Goodyear and Firestone constructed their headquarters here. Bridgestone is in the process of building a new technical center in the city. Several polymer centers are located on the campus of the University of Akron where world-renowned scientists continue to do research. As the industry continues to grow, many businesses require the use of a high quality Akron outsourced Call Center and Answering Service. A live 24 hour telephone answering service is mission-critical for a small business that wants to continue to generate revenue after hours or during the day by way of a virtual receptionist. Having an emergency call center or answering service in the medical profession goes without saying, but having a local answering service as a small business owner is just smart business.
