Marion is a progressive city that enjoys exceptional benefits in terms of transportation, convenience and proximity to markets. Marion County is situated in North Central Ohio's rich agricultural area. The majority of the United States' eastern, northern and mid-western metropolitan markets are within easy reach. Approximately two-thirds of the U.S. and Canadian markets are within a day's truck drive from Marion.

Agriculture and diversified industries form the economic base of the area. Approximately 80 percent of Marion County's land area is devoted to farming with corn, soybeans, hogs and dairy cattle the principal products.

A number of Marion's industries reflect the importance of agriculture to this community. Conagra Foods, Wyandot Snacks and NaChurs Liquid Fertilizer are among the ag-related industries.

There is an increasing mix of technologies in the nonagricultural industries. Whirlpool's dryer manufacturing facility is the largest in the world. The industrial mix also includes automotive parts, plastics, steel tubing, steel bar products, metal stampings, machinery fabrication, and packaging.

Marion offers numerous training and education options, including a branch of Ohio State University, Marion Technical College, and Tri-Rivers Career Center.

State routes 309 and 95 provide excellent east-west access and State routes 4 and 98 provide additional north-south arteries through Marion.

The 6,500-seat Memorial Coliseum at the Marion County Fairgrounds provides another venue for larger shows and exhibitions.
