Site Profile

After more than a decade of planning and steadfast investment to create a world-class industrial park, the City of Wapakoneta, Ohio has succeeded in its mission.  The West Central Ohio Industrial Center (WCOIC) at the intersection of Interstate 75 and US 33 is now one of the largest rail-served, shovel-ready industrial parks in the U.S.  Sites within the WCOIC are currently available for sale at $27,500 per acre.

The WCOIC Job Ready Site, comprised of a total of 471 acres, has the flexibility to offer sites from 20 to 200 acres.  The site has I-75 visibility on its east perimeter and direct access to CSXT mainline rail on the west.  A new lead track from the mainline on to the Job Ready Site was recently constructed.  

Centrally located between Chicago, Cleveland, and Cincinnati, the WCOIC is within a day’s drive of 50% of North America’s population and 60% of its manufacturing companies. Easy access to these profitable markets lowers your cost of doing business.  The site has direct, non-stop access to Interstate 75 in less than two miles.  With its interstate and rail advantages the WCOIC connects you with the Midwest’s strong supply chain across numerous key industries and thereby increases your efficiencies and profits.
