TIFFIN, OHIO – December 19, 2017 – The Seneca Industrial and Economic Development Corp. (SIEDC) has announced plans for a speculative industrial building for the 11.3-acre site at the corner of Shawhan Ave. and Tyber Rd., in the Eagle Rock Business Park. Private investors have acquired the site and will be building the structure, which is to be 50,000 square feet, will be expandable to 200,000, and will include office space. The shell for the building should be up by the summer of next year.

Tiffin Mayor Aaron Montz says the building will allow Tiffin to be more open to new opportunities. “A spec building will give Tiffin a competitive edge when we are courting manufacturers seeking to locate or expand in our area,” he said. “Having the space available and customizable is attractive to a company looking to locate quickly and begin production.”

SIEDC Economic Development Committee Chair and owner of the previous spec building Denny Kerschner agreed. “When I was looking for a place to locate my business in 2007 Tiffin was an easy choice because of the available building. It is critical to have a building like this in order to compete for new projects,” he said.

The building that houses Tiffin Insulators was a speculative building built by SIEDC in 2006, and the Quick Tab II facility, located in the Airport Industrial Park, was also a spec building built by SIEDC in 1994.
