|The City of Maumee is proud of its reputation
as one of Ohio’s premier business locations. In its
earliest days, Maumee was an important military and
commercial outpost. Later the City continued to blossom by
virtue of its strategic location on the Miami and Erie Canal
and by being the original seat of government for Lucas
County. Today Maumee enjoys a diversified economy and is
home to companies involved in automobile manufacturing,
agribusiness, healthcare, advertising, financial services,
and land development among others.
The City’s convenient centralized location continues to
be a major catalyst in our commercial development. A
transportation crossroads, Maumee is bordered by the Ohio
Turnpike and Interstate 475, thereby providing access to
highways in all directions. One of North America’s largest
air cargo hubs, Toledo Express Airport, is a mere 10 miles
to our west and rail transportation is also close by. If
shipping is more to your liking, the Port of Toledo, a major
Great Lakes port, is just minutes away.
The two significant business locations in the City
include the “Uptown” commercial district and the
much-heralded Arrowhead Business Park. Uptown Maumee, as it
is known, consists of a number of historically significant
commercial and residential properties that are ideally
suited to accommodate the needs of small business. Across
town, Arrowhead Park is a carefully planned business
community offering a modern, amenity-rich working
environment for a diverse range of tenant needs. Comprising
nearly 800 acres, Arrowhead utilizes a number of public and
private controls to maintain the park’s appeal and protect
investor’s property values. Since its inception in 1973,
Arrowhead Park has always ranked among the fastest growing
corporate office and light industrial centers in Ohio.
A critical part of the success in growing the Maumee
economy involves our commitment to existing and
potential corporate citizens. The City’s Job Creation and
Retention Tax Credit Program, CRA, and Enterprise Zone Tax
Incentives are among the many reasons to locate here.
Moreover, Maumee’s policy of continuous improvement in its
infrastructure and services provide an additional layer of
support to our business and residential communities. By
keeping our overall tax burden low and our quality of life
high, it allows us to continue our historical leadership as
a commercial center in a modern worldwide marketplace.
Though one may easily find a larger community in which to
conduct business, it will certainly be difficult to find one
that’s better. Maumee’s mix of historical charm, modern
convenience, and small town friendliness is a combination
that many investors have found irresistible over the years.
