Oyonnax is the second most populated cooperative in the Ain division in the Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes area in eastern France. Its inhabitants are known as Oyonnaxiens. Oyonnax lies in a valley of the Jura Mountains in the most distant north of Ain. It is close to the Parc naturel regional du Haut-Jura. The city is on the waterway Ange. Its conspicuousness in the plastics business has earned it the name Plastics Valley.
One of the exceptional accomplishments of the French Resistance happened here on November 11, 1943, when the Maquis de l'Ain et du Haut-Jura opposed the German occupiers to hold a November 11 march and dedication administration to pay tribute to French warriors from World War I. The town was granted the Medaille de la Resistance on 16 June 1947. The town has a social focus, including films, show lobbies, and an "Exhibition hall of the Comb and of the Plastics Industry". Traveler exercises incorporate climbing, kayaking and crosscountry skiing among the woodlands, slopes and pools of the territory.
