Zahns Corner Industrial Park
Zahn’s Corner Industrial Park is an industrial park located southeast of Waverly, Ohio. A 128-acre portion of this 221-acre site is a certified AEP’s Quality Site by McCallum Sweeney Consultants. The park is located within 5 miles of two uncongested four-lane highways, US 23 and SR 32, offering convenient north-south and east-west travel. CSX Transportation has developed a plan for rail siding into the park from its adjacent mainline. All utilities are on site, and an AEP 138 vK line crosses through the park. The site is in an attainment zone.
The Zahn’s Corner Industrial Park is a pre-designated Foreign Trade Zone site within the service area of Rickenbacker’s FTZ #138, which has been approved for Alternative Site Framework (ASF). ASF allows a FTZ designation to be obtained in less than 30 days.

Industrial Park Drive provides dedicated access to the Zahn’s Corner Industrial Park and terminates at a cul de sac, prohibiting through traffic. This drive is a 24-foot two-lane paved road, constructed in compliance with the Pike County, Ohio Engineer’s Office requirements with a painted center line and berms with designated left turn lane onto (Ohio) State Route 220.
Industrial Park Drive is approximately 1.5 miles from four-lane highway State Route 32, which runs east-west and connects to four-lane highway US-23, which runs north-south, just 3.5 miles from the SR-220/SR-32 intersection.
CSX rail runs along the east portion of the site, and CSX Transportation has developed a plan for rail siding into the park from the adjacent mainline.
A Norfolk Southern mainline runs along the western portion of the site, but topographical challenges limit development of a rail spur onto the site, as the rail is located at a lower elevation than the industrial park. A transload facility at the base of the hill near the tracks with a conveyor system to the industrial park may be a possibility.

AEP Ohio owns, operates, and maintains the existing distribution facilities that provide electric service to the Zahn’s Corner Industrial Park. The park is currently served by an existing, single 12kV circuit. This circuit originates from the AEP Ohio Waverly station, which is 3.6 miles from the park. Additionally, AEP Ohio’s 138 kV transmission line traverses the site and is another potential source for electric power for manufacturing companies.
Pike Water, Inc. provides water to the Zahn’s Corner Industrial Park. An 8-inch water line runs along Industrial Park Drive, which extends along the southern border of most of the site. Pike Water can currently provide 450,000 gpd of potable water. Additional water can be supplied with minimum changes to the system if needed.
