Haskins Economic Development Opportunities Report December 2022
Welcome to the Village of Haskins, Ohio. The Village motto is “Haskins is Home”, and its location and quality of life can be the ideal home for your business expansion or relocation.
Situated in the Northwest Ohio Region, an area experiencing significant new investment and economic growth, Haskins is well positioned to take advantage of this improving business climate. Among the businesses that call the Village home are specialty construction trade contractors Titan Mechanical, Inc., and machinery and equipment manufacturer Newing-Hall Inc.
With interstates and state highways in close proximity, Haskins provides quick access to cities throughout the area and adjacent states. Toledo Express Airport is less than 15 miles from the Village, a 20-mnute drive, and the Wood County Regional Airport is about eight (8) miles away, or a 12-minute drive on OH-64 S/Haskins Road.
Just 5 miles from I-75 and less than 15 miles from I-90, Haskins is situated in rapidly growing Wood County, and is part of the Toledo Metropolitan Area. It is located approximately 15 miles southwest of Toledo, just 8 miles northwest of Bowling Green, and within 15 miles of over 40 other municipalities!
The area is benefitting from the exciting renaissance and revitalization of Downtown Toledo, and regional economic collaboration provided by one of Ohio’s premier economic development organizations, the Regional Growth Partnership (RGP) of Northwest Ohio. And yet, Haskins maintains the quiet, peacefulness, and relaxation of a small village.
Quality education and opportunity go hand-in-hand in Northwest Ohio. Students can choose from an impressive array of options to continue their studies close to home including world-class institutions such as Bowling Green State University and the University of Toledo, as well as several other colleges/universities, all located within 20 miles of Haskins. This available talent in such close proximity to Haskins is an important strategic advantage for the Village.
