Medina County, chartered in 1812, is located in northern Ohio and covers 422 square miles. The county has enjoyed continued growth over 60 years, as residents of nearby Cleveland in Cuyahoga County have moved to Medina and surrounding counties to escape the strain of urban life. Beginning in the late 1860s, A.I. Root's bee-keeping became a major industry in the county. Today, Medina's leading industries include Ravago America's new 500,000 square foot plastics logistics and distribution center. Medina is also the home to The Medina County Port Authority's (MCPA) fiber optic cable network which offers best-in-class connectivity service spanning of 151 miles of dark fiber throughout Medina County and, connects all major metropolitan areas in the County with 144 strands of dark fiber and providing connectivity to the existing fiber network in Cuyahoga and Summit Counties.
