Avon offers employers a 19-county labor shed that’s home to more than 1.2 million hard-working and highly skilled individuals. Companies can choose from a wide variety of options, including dedicated business parks of up to 400 acres, as well as a number of office and retail sites, all with easy access to a network of Interstate and Interstate-grade highways that put major markets such as Chicago, Cincinnati, Detroit, Nashville, and Atlanta within an easy day’s drive. The area’s assets are well-suited for many business sectors, including logistics and distribution, precision manufacturing, value-added manufacturing, life sciences, and office and professional services.

For existing employers, our team is available to assist in workforce training programs, expansion assistance, sites and buildings assistance, and incentives, to name just a few.
