Richland County Ohio is the home of many world class industries and there are reasons for that!
Richland County has been a center of industrial production and technical innovation for over a century. The area is home to one of America’s most productive electric furnace steel mills, and our metal fabrication and plastic component production companies supply U.S. and foreign automakers. For decades the county has been the worldwide center for pump production. Today, Richland County holds a significant position in the sensor and plastics industry, and we even have one of the leading developers of hydrogen fuel cells for power production. Many highly specialized manufacturers making pipeline valves and controllers for oil and gas transmission are located here.
The Gorman Rupp Company, Hyundai Ideal Electric, Emerson Process Controls, Newman Technologies, AK Steel, ArcelorMittal Tubular Products and Jay Industries produce their products here for a reason.
What are the reasons?
Richland County exemplifies the term “Trust Belt.” Good workforce, quality training, great incentives all situated in a beautiful, culturally rich community with highly effective education systems and affordable housing.
