Business Associations

Due to the close proximity to the City of Dublin and I-270 the area has grown rapidly over the last 15 years and contains a wide range of businesses- automotive services, manufacturing, R&D and retail establishments. Many of the companies have relocated from other parts of central Ohio to the Industrial Parkway corridor where a supportive business environment exists.

The IPA has monthly meetings (2nd Thursday) where the association members discuss current events affecting the parkway area and look for ways to improve the business environment. Many local government representatives attend IPA meetings along with area law enforcement and fire departments officers. The businesses work with the local zoning inspector, zoning board and board of zoning appeals to ensure the quality of development is positive for the township.

The IPA board strives to provide support to the businesses by scheduling a series of presentations each month which touch on important topics for all businesses- HR, accounting, insurance, roadway/utility infrastructure, employee safety and business security to name a few. The board has been successful in procuring food truck services to the parkway area which has been very popular as well as hosting an annual IPA golf outing.
