Why Wayne County?



The highly anticipated Micropolitan rankings have recently been released from POLICOM Corporation and Site Selection magazine. In the 2022 POLICOM Strength Ranking, Wayne County placed 14th nationally and was No. 1 in Ohio for the 5th year in a row. In addition, Site Selection Magazine released their Governor's Cup rankings in Site Selection Magazine and Wooster/Wayne County placed 7th nationally in new project expansions.

Wayne County's consistent performance is fueled by a vibrant, international business community. Conveniently nestled between Cleveland and Columbus, area businesses have come to realize the advantages of a small town location including a cost-competitive, skilled workforce and a collaborative, pro-business governance. Companies like The J.M. Smucker Company, The Schaeffler Group, GOJO Industries, Daisy Brand and PepsiCo, and have chosen Wayne County for its ease of access to major U.S. and international markets, its leading education and research institutions and its below average business and living costs.
