Haydon Corporation Announces Plans to Expand

Haydon Corporation, a leading construction materials’ manufacturer, has announced plans to open a new distribution center in Stow, Ohio. The Ohio Department of Development (ODOD) approved the project for tax credit assistance during its Ohio Tax Credit Authority meeting today.

This will be Haydon’s fourth distribution center in the United States, strategically located to better service the growing demand of customers in the Midwest.

“The opening of a Midwest facility marks an important milestone in our journey, as we continue to assess our geographic presence and optimize connectivity with customers across North America,” said Chad Collins, CEO and President of Haydon Corporation. “We are excited to partner with the Ohio Department of Development (ODOD) to create additional job opportunities and have a positive economic impact for the state of Ohio. The addition of the Stow facility will allow us to better provide our customers with exceptional service by shortening lead times and increasing inventory options in the Midwest.”

Located at 4847 Gray Lane, the 254,000 square foot site will include inventory such as strut, hardware, baseboard, and rooftop materials.

The brand-new facility will contribute to the region’s employment growth and economic development. Site renovations will begin late summer of 2023 and operations are expected to be up and running in early 2024.

“Haydon Corporation’s decision to choose Northeast Ohio for its latest facility maximizes efficiencies that will meet the growing demand for the company’s construction materials throughout the Midwest,” said J.P. Nauseef, JobsOhio president and CEO. “These new operations in Stow will be home to new jobs and a strategic location near efficient transportation infrastructure, outstanding Northeast Ohio talent, and Haydon’s steel suppliers.”

“On behalf of everyone at Team NEO, our local partners, JobsOhio and the Ohio Department of Development, we welcome Haydon Corporation to the Northeast Ohio Region, a location that gives the company efficient access to their customers, as well as a talented workforce,” said Chief Executive Officer Bill Koehler. “With the fourth largest interstate system in the country, the Northeast Ohio Region is an attractive destination for distribution facilities. It signals resilience and reduces risk long term, helping companies position for future growth.”
