A Massachusetts-based company is planning to expand in Fort Wayne and add up to 45 jobs by 2019. Web Industries Fort Wayne Inc. says construction is underway on a 50,000 square-foot addition to its facility that currently employs 75 in Allen County.

The expansion to the 110,000 square-foot facility is set to be complete by the end of the year and will serve as space for multi-color printing and large format spooling assets. The company, which converts materials found in airplanes, juice boxes, extension cords and medical testing materials, has been in Fort Wayne since 2004 when it acquired the facility from KT Industries.

President Mark Phil says "Indiana offers Web Industries many business and quality-of-life advantages. The state's sound fiscal policies and infrastructure investments have created a strong pro-business environment. The Hoosier workforce is skilled, educated and passionate about building success. The state's central location and extensive transportation system allow us to easily support our expanding customer base. In short, we've found that Indiana has all of the advantages of the state's larger neighbors with few of the downsides, if any."

Web Industries is employee-owned and is looking to hire flexographic press and machine operators, supporting leaders and infrastructure professionals.

The company is set to receive up to $70,000 in conditional tax credits from the Indiana Economic Development Corp.
