New Philadelphia Means Business

New Philadelphia is positioning itself to become the gateway city into the emerging petrochemical manufacturing industry in the Shale Crescent area of Eastern Ohio. Plastics and polymer manufacturing and metal fabrication companies have been major employers in our community for decades.

Our skilled labor force is one of the key assets we have for business sustainment and growth. Workforce training centers are available at Buckeye Career Center and on the campus of Kent State-Tuscarawas. KSU-Tusc’s business and community services include a Small Business Development Center and professional development programs like Lean Six Sigma.

Our water supply is plentiful. Our location at the intersections of Interstate 77, US Route 250 and State Route 39, puts us in the middle of the metropolitan areas triangle of Cleveland, Columbus and Pittsburgh.

Our city is home to the Tuscarawas County's only Regional Technology Park, which was constructed to attract technology-based businesses and manufacturers who require high speed data transmission. More information about the RTP can be found here:

New Philadelphia has Tuscarawas County’s only municipal airport. Information on Harry Clever Field can be found here:

 Our city has been named one of the Top 10 Safest and Most Peaceful Places to Live in Ohio! We are ranked 22nd out of 550 micropolitan areas in the 2018 Policom Micropolitan Economic Rankings.
