Since 1840, Bryan has been a vibrant community at the center of life in Northwestern Ohio. Bryan is located in the heart of the industrial Midwest, just minutes from Michigan and Indiana at the center of the country’s economic growth. Bryan’s central location in the U.S. reduces shipping costs and improves transport times by 24 to 48 hours. The Ohio Turnpike and the rail system provide high-speed transportation and economic development options with easy access to Chicago, Detroit and the world.
Bryan is a friendly community combining large city conveniences with small town charm. Companies with national and international markets currently enjoy the quality schools, the safe countryside with affordable real estate, and the enriched culture of the city of Bryan, the county seat of Williams County.
Bryan is located near several major metropolitan airports, including Ft. Wayne International and Toledo Express. The Williams County Airport, just two miles to the east of Bryan, accommodates corporate jets, private planes, and small freight companies.
