Hardin County has many build-ready industrial sites that have been reviewed by site selection consultants and industry experts. These industrial parks and sites have existing industry within the area, zoned for industrial/manufacturing, access utilities, excess capacities and connected to rail and highway infrastructure.
Two major industrial corridors are within Hardin County. The U.S. 30 Industrial corridor is named after the four-lane highway that runs along the northern part of the county. The villages of Ada, Dunkirk, and Forest are in close proximity to U.S. 30 by less than a mile. Ada is home to Grass Run Industrial Park and large industrial sites are available in Forest and Dunkirk, Ohio.
The U.S. 68 industrial corridor in Kenton, Ohio is home to 1,000+ acres of existing manufacturing and warehouse developments south of Kenton. Buck Industrial Park and near by rail-served industrial sites provide about 200+ acres of build-ready space with immediate access to U.S. 68, a key north-south trucking corridor linking Interstates 75 & 70 and U.S. 30.
In addition, Hardin County also provides a unique advantage for fast building or build-to-suit options with local companies who can design and construct steel metal buildings for commercial, agricultural, manufacturing and warehouse uses.
