"Seaman Corporation has manufacturing facilities in Wooster, Ohio and in Bristol, Tennessee. While we have found that both of these locations offer positive attributes for businesses, we have a strong commitment to the Wayne County community.

Wayne County has a good labor force and is a location with excellent logistic support. Most importantly though, I treasure the quality of life offered by this unique community.

The agricultural community supported by Ohio State’s Agriculture, Research and Development Center, the light industrial base, and the College of Wooster, offer a stimulating living environment for a rural community. At the same time, Wooster has excellent access to the culture of the larger cities of Cleveland and Akron.

Wayne County truly is a special place to live, work, and raise a family."

Richard Seaman, Chairman & CEO - Seaman Corporation


"Wayne County has a diversified, progressive economic base and high quality of life.   

The Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center of The Ohio State University is pleased to be part of that diversity and to add to the strong educational influence that helps support the area communities. 

The Wayne Economic Development Council is a critical "advantage plus," which not only keeps the economic drivers of the area connected but which also has the needed information at hand to share with others on why Wayne County is a great business destination."

Steve Slack, Director - The
Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center (OARDC)


"Wayne County is a great location to do business. The work force available possesses solid Midwestern values that equates to good employees.  The quality of life offered in our area is also a strong attribute to attracting and retaining skilled employees."

"Wayne County has a tremendous team spirit not found elsewhere. If you need anything, you can be assured that government, the business community and other organizations will be there to assist you in any way possible. They have all certainly been there for me." 

Steve Matthew, President - Wooster Hydrostatics
