NORTH VERNON — A manufacturer of custom injection-molded plastic parts and components is expanding its operations in southern Indiana.
Officials announced Thursday that North Vernon-based Decatur Plastics Products plans to add up to 70 new jobs by 2021 as part of its expansion in Jennings County. The company plans to invest $11.4 million over the next five years to expand its headquarters and production operations.
Decatur Plastics Products is currently renovating and equipping a recently-purchased building in the North Vernon Industrial Park to house additional warehousing and accommodate light assembly. The company then plans to construct a facility next to its new building by summer 2020.
The Indiana Economic Development Corp. offered Decatur Plastics Products up to $475,000 in conditional tax credits based on the company's job creation plans.
