Port Authority receives OEDA’s “Best Project” Award for Cleveland-Cliffs Project

TOLEDO, October 23, 2018: For the second time in three years, the Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority has received the Ohio Economic Development Association’s (OEDA) coveted “Best Project” award. The Ohio Economic Development Association presented the Port Authority with the award for The Cleveland-Cliffs Project at Ironville Terminal at its 2018 Annual Summit held October 17-18 in Columbus.

The OEDA’s awards program recognizes economic and workforce development achievements throughout Ohio. The Best Project category recognizes outstanding and innovative projects in economic and business development that retain or generate jobs and investment.

The Port Authority, in conjunction with public and private partners, was successful in obtaining a commitment from Cleveland-Cliffs Inc. to construct a new hot briquetted iron (HBI) production facility at Ironville Terminal. This project represents a $700 million investment in Northwest Ohio and will position Cleveland-Cliffs Inc. to be the sole supplier of high-quality HBI for the electric arc furnace steel market in the Great Lakes Region.

“Recognition such as this does not happen by accident,” said Paul Toth, President and CEO of the Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority. “This is a result of a strong partnership between the Port Authority, Regional Growth Partnership, JobsOhio, Lucas County, and the City of Toledo, all working cooperatively to maximize the potential of our region.”

The Port Authority is a two-time winner of the Best Project Award, first receiving the award in 2016 for The Dana Project at Overland Industrial Park.
