JDM Outdoors of Ontario marked a significant milestone with a grand opening ceremony at its new location at the intersection of Ohio 314 and 309. The event, held on a recent Friday morning, was attended by members of the Richland Area Chamber of Commerce-Economic Development and various community leaders. The new location signifies not just a physical move but also an expansion of the company’s growing footprint in the outdoor structures market.

A Business Journey

JDM Outdoors has come a long way in its business journey. The company specializes in a wide range of outdoor structures, including lawn and patio furniture, playsets, and more. The new facility at 4003 Park Avenue West is the company’s 16th location, stretching its operations from Pittsburgh to Sandusky to Columbus.

Made in Millersburg, Built for You

Much of JDM’s outdoor furniture is crafted in Millersburg, with some pieces also made in Pennsylvania. The company takes pride in its local manufacturing capabilities, which extend to constructing cabins, sheds, barns, and homes. These structures are not just built; they are engineered with precision and care, reflecting the company’s commitment to quality and local craftsmanship.

A Diverse Portfolio

JDM Outdoors is not just about furniture and playsets. The company has diversified teams that engage in commercial construction, custom homes, modular homes, garages, cabins, sheds, and even animal shelters. This wide array of services showcases the company’s versatility and its ability to meet various customer needs, making it a one-stop solution for outdoor structures.

The Legacy of Craftsmanship

The story of JDM Outdoors began almost three decades ago with a small shed built by the company’s founder when he was just fifteen. Using scavenged wood and a single old window, he laid the foundation for what would become a thriving business. Today, JDM employs advanced building processes and materials, including a recent innovation—a baked-on finish with UV rays that improves paint adhesion, setting a new standard in the industry.

For those interested in exploring JDM’s offerings, the Ontario location is open from 10 AM to 5 PM on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, and from 10 AM to 3 PM on Saturdays. The company also has a robust online presence with its websites, and, where customers can configure their sheds and see prices, including delivery options.
