Real American Strength.

Strength. Real American Strength. The kind of strength that’s more than being powerful, its a combination of people, place and partnership that created the kind of strength that makes Lima/Allen County unlike any other city or county in Ohio. Together, we’ve made a community that’s far more than a place on the map.

We work in collaboration with state and local partners to offer comprehensive services to prospective businesses considering Lima/Allen County. From financing options, such as the D’Arcy Loan, and other initiatives, we provide resources to grow and develop Allen County. We leverage the many strengths and attributes of the region’s skilled workforce, transportation and technology corridors, educational resources, real estate options, and infrastructure to spur economic growth for the communities we serve.
