Exceptional quality of life combined with an outstanding business environment are reasons why Northeast Ohio’s Trumbull County is a great place to live and work.

Originally encompassing the entire Connecticut Western Reserve area of Northeast Ohio, Trumbull County was established on July 10, 1800, with Warren as the county seat.

Since 1800, Trumbull County has grown to become a manufacturing and commercial center. Covering 615 square miles, the county is a mix of urban municipalities, suburban townships and undeveloped open spaces and farms. Much of Trumbull County’s manufacturing employment is related to the automotive industry, with the largest employers including General Motors and Delphi Automotive Systems. The county, along with the Village of Lordstown and the State of Ohio, recently provided assistance to General Motors in their efforts to manufacture the Chevrolet Cruze in Lordstown in 2010. While many outsource suppliers for General Motors have relocated to Trumbull County to be “just in time,” the county has many other available industrial sites for new companies moving to the area.

Trumbull County has an aggressive economic development program to attract new industries, investments and jobs, and to help retain existing jobs and assist local companies to expand. The county’s Enterprise Zone Program offers tax abatements to new and existing businesses for new investments that create or retain jobs. Low interest loans are available to small and large businesses through the Revolving Loan Fund, the CDBG Program and the Mini-Loan Fund Program. The county has also assisted businesses in locating to the area through grants for new public infrastructure.


In 2007 the total employment for all industries in Trumbull County was 79,246.
