Lordstown is a village in southern Trumbull County, Ohio, United States. The population was 3,332 at the 2020 census. It is part of the Youngstown–Warren metropolitan area.
Lordstown is best known as the home of the Lordstown Assembly, a General Motors automotive plant that produced compact cars from 1966 until 2019. After the closure of Youngstown's steel factories, the Lordstown Assembly became the largest industrial employer of the Mahoning Valley region. The factory is currently owned by Foxconn for the production of Lordstown Motors vehicles. GM and LG Chem have built a 30 GWh EV battery factory in the town, Ultium Cells LLC, which is scheduled to begin production in August 2022. The village is also home to a TJX HomeGoods distribution center, as well as several smaller manufacturers.
Lordstown Township, which nearly completely incorporated as the village of Lordstown in 1975 (except for a small section which was then annexed to Warren Township), was one of the original survey townships of the Connecticut Western Reserve as Town 3, Range 4. The township, and subsequently the village, was named for Alec C. Lord, who laid out the township.
