On Monday, Peloton held a ground breaking ceremony for their new Peloton Output Park. First announced in May, the Peloton Output Park is Peloton’s first US-based factory. It sits on over 200 acres and will eventually have over 1 million square feet of manufacturing & office space, and bring more than 2,000 jobs to the area.
The event was held at 22671 Pemberville Road, Luckey, OH – potentially the official address of the new Peloton Output Park, although some documents have referenced the address as 10 Eastwood Dr, Luckey OH. It is located directly to the north of a Home Depot distribution center. The goal is to have the new factory & offices operational by 2023.
The construction kick-off event featured several Peloton executives & instructors, in addition to local officials, including Ohio governor Mike DeWine & Lt. Gov. Jon Husted. In attendance for Peloton were John Foley, William Lynch, Tom Cortese, Chelsea Jackson Roberts, and Tunde Oyeneyin, among others.
Peloton President William Lynch said the following about the selection of Ohio, as reported by the Fremont News Messenger:
“(There’s) a great employee base, there’s a lot of talent here from the auto industry,” Lynch. “This is our biggest manufacturing plant globally.”
Lynch said the Peloton facility will be the central nervous system in the country, connecting with warehouses around the country, such as in Detroit, and retail shops in Columbus. Major thoroughfares linking to U.S. 20 will allow the company to ship products around the country.
He said Ohio is one of the company’s top 10 membership states and Columbus is one of the company’s top retail stores.
Peloton instructor Chelsea Jackson Roberts shared how being back in Ohio to celebrate the kickoff had special meaning to her:
To have the opportunity to show up in this way has been completely full circle for me and I am over the moon to work for a company that values the contribution of the Ohio workforce.
I mentioned my Granny today on that stage and her decades of service to the industrial workforce in Ohio. How cool is that?
What a great day for Peloton, Ohio, and this community!
Peloton will also be providing the local YMCA (Wayman D. Palmer Community YMCA) with some Peloton bikes, as part of of its partnership with Local Initiatives Support Corporation. This partnership was announced as part of the Peloton Pledge. Peloton stated:
We’re thrilled to bring our work with LISC into the local community right here in Ohio! We’re partnering with LISC and the Wayman D. Palmer Community YMCA in Toledo to transform the YMCA exercise room into an inviting, well-equipped center for wellness by installing Peloton connected fitness equipment later this year. This investment in the center complements other programming and partnerships that the YMCA is expanding to ensure everyone in the community has opportunities for holistic health and wellness.
