It Matters Where You Make It

Toledo is located in Northwest Ohio on Lake Erie’s western shore, within a day’s drive of half the U.S. and Canadian markets. Its geographic location makes it an ideal site for transportation, distribution and integrated logistics.

Located just 45 miles from Detroit, Toledo is a major center for the automotive industry. Fiat Chrysler pumps out 300,000+ Jeep Wranglers annually, and nearby GM Powertrain has received more than $1 billion in investments over the last eight years.

This region is blessed with a diverse manufacturing industry base that includes food processing, energy, steel. With dozens of spec buildings and sites ready for immediate occupation.

Businesses will find a trained workforce backed by an educational system of more than 200,000 undergraduate students. Major headquarters in Northwest Ohio include Owens Corning, Marathon Petroleum, Owens Illinois and Dana Corporation.

Ohio has the lowest taxes in the Midwest, and that makes Northwest Ohio an extremely profit-friendly business climate for companies locating here.
