Target Industries

Middletown is growing. With a diverse economy, businesses ranging from AK Steel to local startups and Atrium Medical Center are thriving here. Our location in the Cincinnati-Dayton MSA, interstate, rail and water transportation are helping to make this possible, as is our skilled workforce. 

The City of Middletown Economic Development department is actively working to encourage local business growth and to attract new investment to the area. We are working with all industry sectors and looking to build upon the strong business sectors already here. These include steel, chemical, aviation, and packaging.
