Holland Springfield Chamber of Commerce

As our nation is healing from the economic decline, we are looking forward to building a stronger local economy by linking partnerships and working together with area businesses to share knowledge and business opportunities.

The Holland/Springfield area is one of the fastest growing communities in Northwest Ohio. The development of office and commercial parks such as the Holland Business Center, Springdale Industrial Park, and Wolfe Creek Executive Park, has attracted many new businesses to the area. Several retail developments and restaurant establishments have also expanded into the vicinity.

In addition, an increasing number of residential developments offering a variety of price ranges, together with a comprehensive, “Excellent” rated Springfield Local School system, offer residents a pleasant place to live.

Mission Statement

The Holland Springfield Chamber of Commerce exists to promote business growth and enhance the quality of life in our community.
