Heath Overview

Heath is primed for growth. We offer local and county incentives combined with unmatched readiness. We not only possess many shovel-ready sites, but we also have a business-friendly government and extensive infrastructure that enables development to move–quickly.

It's the People
We hear that all the time. A small town with caring citizens, Heath is a family-friendly place. From little league to large events, volunteerism is at the heart of the community.

It's the Lifestyle
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.

It's the Workforce
With a high-performance, skilled labor force of 85,100 in Licking County, Heath businesses have a tremendous pool from which to find talent. Outstanding local higher education and training facilities provide highly qualified graduates.

It's the Place
Our 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. More than 60 percent of the U.S. and 50 percent of the Canadian population reside within 600 miles of Heath.

It's the Bottom Line
Local and county incentive programs combine with pro-business policies to make Heath an attractive home for large and small companies alike. A Community Reinvestment Area, an Enterprise Zone, and Foreign Trade Zone #138 are signatures of our community's aggressive approach to economic development.
