NEW US HEADQUARTERS
Mucci Farms was interested in the Erie County area due to proximity to their markets, but 100 acres with affordable electricity rate to power 24/7 greenhouse growing was no small request. ECEDC worked with BGSU Firelands, the State of Ohio, and the City of Huron to secure the ideal site located adjacent to the municipal-owned substation. ECEDC facilitated a JobsOhio economic development grant to support this $75 million investment.
WHAT WE DID:
- Site selection
JobsOhio Economic Development Grant
Local legislation support
We reached across borders, to bring the Canadian-based greenhouse growers to Huron, OH, bringing locally grown tomatoes to retailers across the region.
