Why Ohio?

Tractor Supply plans to build an 875,000-square-foot facility in Northeast Ohio, drawn by the easy access to workforce talent as well as exceptional transportation and logistics efficiencies in Ohio.

In 2019, CNBC placed Ohio among the top ten best states for business because of its infrastructure and logistics capabilities. Ohio has the fourth largest interstate highway system in the nation and 60% of United States and Canadian customers are within a day’s drive, which makes Ohio ideal for road transport.
