Yorktown-based manufacturer Mursix Corp. has announced the acquisition of Indianapolis-based Dakota Engineering Inc. Mursix says the deal will bring 22 jobs to Delaware County.

The company says it worked Delaware County officials to not only bring the jobs to its Yorktown plant, but also nearly $2 million in new taxable machinery. The Delaware County Redevelopment Commission approved a $150,000 tax incentive to help Mursix purchase and move the machinery.

"This is great news for our company, our associates, our customers and for our host community – Delaware County," said Mursix CEO Todd Murray. "For our customers, Dakota’s capabilities in sophisticated horizontal and vertical CNC machining will strengthen the already extensive portfolio of manufacturing solutions that they have come to expect from Mursix."

Murray says since the company was founded in 1990, it has grown from 28 employees to over 300 and generates about $40 million in sales each year. In 2014, the company announced a $7 million expansion that would create over 100 jobs by 2017.

In an interview with Inside INdiana Business Television last year, Murray celebrated 25 years in business.
