TSEP Success Report - 2020

INDUSTRIAL & COMMERCIAL

The expansion of existing industrial businesses dominated the community’s investment and job creation numbers. Church & Dwight’s $38.3 million expansion was one of the largest in recent memory, while companies like American Plastics, Ameriwood/Dorel, Webster Industries, TPC Food Service, Taiho, Arnold Machine, and others made substantial investments. Commercial expansions were also numerous, including Circle K’s new facility, with other businesses like Walmart, UIS Insurance, Tiffin Aire, Tiffin Drive-In Theater, Clinton Heights Golf Course, and Bodyworks also making investments and expanding. Despite the challenges of the pandemic, industrial attraction was also a key 2020 theme, as a number of businesses selected Seneca County for their new facility. In February, Findlay- based MBDS located a new operation in the former Tiffin Insulators building at the Eagle Rock Business Park, with plans to hire 29 workers. In November, Michigan-headquartered TH Plastics purchased the Tiffin Spec Building for $1.9 million, is expanding it, and is planning to add millions in equipment. And in January 2021, Centricity Automation announced it was going to move its operations to the Northstar Industrial Park.

DID YOU KNOW? Tiffin and Seneca County is an average micropolitan area in terms of population and economic strength and smaller in land area than most, yet we con- sistently rank near the top nationally for eco- nomic development.
