Lahm Airport Opportunities

Mansfield Lahm Airport is located approximately three miles north and 10 minutes driving time from the center of the city. Both Harrington Memorial Road and State Route 13 lead to the airport from Mansfield. Both are accessible from exits on U.S. 30 -- the major east-west highway serving Mansfield and the North Central Ohio area; and from I-71. U.S. 30 provides a direct connection between Pittsburgh and Chicago. Because the Mansfield Metropolitan area is within an hour commute of Columbus or Cleveland via Interstate 71 the area is served by more than 70 common carrier companies. U.S. 30 West also provides direct access to I-75 and I-80 and I-90 in the Fort Wayne area. The Mansfield Lahm Airport is an ideal location for your company to build and grow. Gorman-Rupp, Crane Plumbing, Therm-O-Disc, Sprint and School Specialty (Frey Scientific) have made their headquarters at the airport. Chief executive officers of 30 local companies, six bank presidents and a newspaper publisher endorse our invitation to you to seriously consider establishing your air operation at Mansfield Lahm Airport.
