Economic Development: Business Advantages
Fairfield County
Location and workforce impact site selection. Fairfield County companies benefit from Ohio's Midwest location, a strong transportation infrastructure, and a regional workforce that totals nearly one million.

Market Access
Interstate-70 and numerous US and State highways put companies within one day's drive of 60% of the US population and 50% of the Canadian population. Two railroads, Norfolk-Southern and RailAmerica, and Fairfield County Airport, featuring a 5,000 foot runway, complete the county's transportation infrastructure.

Companies and residents also benefit from nearby Port Columbus and Rickenbacker International Airports. Plus, the County's rail advantages are further enhanced by Norfolk-Southern's new Rail Intermodal facility, located only minutes from northwest Fairfield County.
