TIFFIN, OHIO – Feb. 3, 2020 – A manufacturer based in Northwest Ohio announced today that it plans to open a new facility in Tiffin, with operations to begin in early Spring. MBDS is to locate at the former Tiffin Insulators, 981 Tyber Road, Tiffin, and expects in its first year to hire 29 employees and invest over $100,000 in the operation.

MBDS, LLC (Manufacturing Business Development Solutions) is a multi-million dollar company that was established in 2003 and has had success in supplying products that reach both the major appliance industries and leading automotive companies, such as Honda, Nissan and Toyota. The company is headquartered in Findlay with a second campus in Upper Sandusky and employs 55 people in the region.

Local incentives for this project include City of Tiffin’s New Jobs Program, which was approved by Tiffin City Council Feb. 3; the potential for workforce development grants through OhioMeansJobs – Seneca County; and a pre-exiting Community Reinvestment Area tax exemption on the Tiffin Insulators property.

“We are excited to be making Tiffin the location of our third campus and completing our Trinity Project,” said Brian Robertson, President of MBDS. “The workforce and local support helped us make the decision to open in Seneca County.”

Tiffin Mayor Aaron Montz commented, “I’m proud that Brian Robertson has chosen Tiffin as the new campus for MBDS and that our manufacturing community continues to grow in Tiffin. This is a further result of all the great things in our community.”
