Eurofins, Planet Fitness and WellNow come to city


A Planet Fitness fitness center will be opening late next month in Barberton.

Three new businesses are bringing dozens of jobs to Barberton, including one that currently employs more than 100 people.

That operation, an environmental testing facility called Eurofins, recently held an open house at its 50,000-square-foot facility. The location is a former industrial building on South Van Buren Avenue, said Barberton Mayor William Judge in a recent email.

“They purchased one of the former B&W buildings and brought their operations here to town,” Judge said, calling the laboratory a “big win” for the city.

The company purchased the building in October 2021 and moved from its North Canton location, bringing 114 jobs. It is part of Eurofins’ network of more than 900 laboratories in 50 countries and is based in Luxembourg.
