Founded in 1802, Newark is now home to a wealth of businesses, enterprises, entrepreneurs and families. From the two log cabins built by its first settlers, it grew steadily throughout the 1800s, growth shaped by the arrival of the Erie Canal, a prosperous farming community, and an industrious workforce. It would continue to grow with the arrival of companies like Holophane, Heisey and Owens Corning Fiberglass — brought here by our rich store of silica, iron, oil and glass. The proud seat of Licking County’s government, Newark’s classic 1876 courthouse serves as an icon of Midwestern architecture. And our town square offers unique shopping afforded by small-family businesses that stretch back generations.

Newark is and remains home to a wealth of both small and larger businesses, several colleges, including Ohio State’s Newark Campus, an industrious workforce, premier health providers, affordable housing, and a variety jobs in both private and public organizations. Always committed to doing a lot with a little, Newark offers a friendly business environment, close proximity to Columbus, and both the feel and the work-ethic of small-town America.

Heath is a small town with caring citizens and a family-friendly place. From little league to large events, volunteerism is at the heart of the community. This central Ohio location provides unbeatable multi-modal market access. Situated along State Route 79, Heath is 5 miles from I-70 and 3 miles from four-lane State Route 16. Nearby rail, air, and telecommunications capabilities prime the area for business.

Beautiful parks, picnic areas, walking trails, a top-notch community water park, and hundreds of acres of preserved green space—all hallmarks of Heath. In addition, restaurants, retail, and cultural opportunities abound.
