Tuscarawas County

Tuscarawas County

Tuscarawas County’s excellent blend of business, manufacturing, agriculture, recreation, and tourism sectors create a strong economic environment. The county’s lakes, forests, rolling farm meadows, and the canoe-inviting Tuscarawas River are becoming the stuff of movie sets, and attract more than four million outdoor lovers, extreme sports enthusiasts, anglers, and trail treckers each year. Dennison Depot Railroad Museum, Atwood Lake and Lodge, Zoar Historic Village and a large Amish community are additional draws.

Agriculture remains strong with family farms; large-scale chicken, hog, and cattle business farms; tmilk, cheese and other dairy producing operations; and several wineries. The county also has agricultural research and development companies, and manufacturing of agricultural products.

Manufacturing of specialty products, and design/build products is prevalent in Tuscarawas County. Our highly qualified workforce is experienced in the manufacture and maintenance of specialty vehicles like cement mixers, fracking trucks, oil and gas tankers, high crane trucks, and off-the-road emergency vehicles. Plastic, polymer and rubber product design and production for automotive applications, home products, insulators, agricultural uses, medical instruments and now Utica Shale oil and gas, are also widespread.

It’s easy to get here, easy to get everywhere from here, and easy to get around here with I-77 north/south and east/west connectors to Columbus, and Pittsburgh, and a short 35 minute trip to Akron/Canton Airport. If you’re shipping freight, rail lines are abundant.
