Clyde Economic Development Opportunities Report February 2022

Multiple Sites in City of Clyde, OH

Rich in history, home to the world’s largest washing machine manufacturer, small town friendliness, whatever you are looking for, chances are Clyde has it!

The City of Clyde, Ohio offers easy access to a network of ground, air, water, and rail transportation. The Sandusky County Regional Airport is located two miles west of Clyde and is large enough to accommodate commercial corporate aircraft. Additional regularly scheduled commercial flights from Toledo Express Airport and Cleveland Hopkins International Airport are within minutes of Clyde. Clyde offers easy access to four lane roadways like the Ohio Turnpike, Interstate 80/90, and U.S. Route 20. State Route 101 and State Route 510 run through our city. If its rail you need, the Norfolk and Southern Railway serves Clyde. Major markets within a day’s drive include Milwaukee, Charleston, Pittsburgh, and Boston.

Lake Erie and the Port of Toledo are only 33 miles from Clyde. It offers a full-service seaport and an inland distribution center all in one location. The port contains transloading facilities, warehousing, foreign trade zones, and enhances access to domestic and international markets.

Existing businesses that call Clyde home include Whirlpool, Revere Plastics, Evergreen Plastics, Sandco, ArtiFlex, Spader Freight Services and Progress TAC.

Clyde takes a pro-active approach to building, owning, and maintaining its energy, communications, water, and wastewater infrastructure. Our municipally owned electric system provides reliable service at traditionally lower costs than investor-owned utilities. The City takes a multi-layer approach to power resiliency. Energy reaches the City of Clyde via two separate and independent transmission lines and the city recently commissioned 10MWs of natural gas generation with enough capacity to back up the city’s typical distribution load. When it comes to renewables, Clyde is home to a 20 acres, 3.65 MW solar array equipped with single-axis trackers. Renewable energy opportunities will continue to be investigated and vetted for additional financial and resiliency benefits.
