WAEDC Story & Staff

Partnership guarantees you business success.

The Wapakoneta Area Economic Development Council (WAEDC) is in the prosperity business. Our mission is to enhance the economic well-being and success of the Wapakoneta area. We do this through a variety of efforts that promote additional employment opportunities and business growth.

WAEDC was founded in 1989 with a mission to enhance the economic well-being and success of the Wapakoneta area. We are governed by a 13 member, volunteer Board of Directors representing a wide variety of local business and government interests. Wapakoneta's public-private approach to development eliminates obstacles, accentuates start ups, and feeds business growth.

We serve companies and site consultants as the single point of entry into our community. We work closely with city, county, and state governments to fulfill the Ohio Promise:

  • Ohio offers balance without compromise. An enriching future in both business and life is equally and readily attainable.
  • Ohio offers everything business needs to thrive and grow. And in Ohio, business success is built within the broader context of a fulfilling life.
  • Ohio is a place where balance without compromise allows you to achieve at a higher level and thus realize your individual aspirations - at home, at work and in the community.

WAEDC is dedicated to delivering on that promise. We welcome the opportunity to work with you as you consider Wapakoneta as a location for your business. Your success is our highest priority.
