It offers the advantages of small-town living with the amenities of the Cleveland, Columbus, Akron and Canton metroopolitan statistical areas in close proximity. Wayne County pride itself on its agricultural heritage and the work ethic it has engendered in the labor force.

Companies like J.M Smucker, Schaeffler (LuK), Worthington Industries, Purina and Pepsico all have operations in Wayne County. They are joined by a host of other local manufacturing concerns that continue to grow due to lower costs and ready access to markets.
