Shirt Printer Looks to Add Lawrence JobsPosted: Updated:
A printing company is seeking tax abatement to open a plant in Lawrence. Little Raymond's Print Shop Inc., a subsidiary of California-based online t-shirt retailer ooShirts Inc., says the project would result in more than 100 new jobs over the next four years. ooShirts says rapid growth has led to the need for a new printing facility. Little Raymond's plans to invest nearly $1 million in new manufacturing equipment. The printer says about half of the new hires would occur this year.
The Indianapolis Metropolitan Development Commission is planning a preliminary vote on the abatement request Wednesday. If it is approved, a final vote could come at the commission's August 21 meeting.
