Lima Ohio Listed as Leading Location

Lima is a Leading Location

In a recent study conducted by Area Development, Lima, Ohio was listed as one of the hottest places in America for new and expanding businesses. For the sixth year, Area Development has developed a list of Leading Locations derived from data collected during examination. Their multi-faceted approach collects a wide-variety of data, and generates rankings in four vital areas – Prime Workforce, Economic Strength, Year-Over-Year Growth and Five-Year Growth.

Out of the 394 metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs) reviewed, Lima ranked as 33rd on the list of Leading Locations. Economic growth is a key driver for rankings. You may notice that some of the locations that may have been high on last year’s list have fell a bit. This isn’t necessarily indicative of economic disaster, however it does indicate that economic growth has slowed since last year’s tally.
