The Richland County Advantage

Richland County’s central location in Ohio, rich history of industrial development and local incentives are just a few of the advantages we have.

Richland County has been a center of industrial production and technical innovation for over a century. What does that mean? Our county has been a worldwide pump production center for decades. It’s home to one of America’s most productive electric furnace steel mills, as well as metal fabrication and plastic component production that supplies U.S. and foreign automakers.

Today, Richland County holds a significant position in the sensor and plastics industry. We’re home to one of the leading developers of hydrogen fuel cells for power production and highly specialized manufacturers that make pipeline valves and controllers for oil and gas transmission.
