NORTH JACKSON, Ohio – A Newton Falls-based entity has purchased a manufacturing site at 12356 Mahoning Ave. for $900,000, according to records filed with the Mahoning County Auditor’s office.

Direct Development LLC bought the 12,000-square-foot building from MK Metals Inc. on May 12, records show.

The building and land are appraised at $506,080 for tax purposes by the auditor’s office. 

According to its Facebook page, Direct Development lists its address as 1536 First St., Newton Falls.

Earlier this year, Direct Development sold a legacy industrial property at that same location for $4.1 million to First Street Commercial Development Ltd.

That building’s major tenant is Direct International Inc., headquartered in Newton Falls, which occupies more than 200,000 square feet of space at that location, according to Business Journal records. The company is a national supplier of home décor and seasonal gift items.
