WESTFIELD -

Westfield-based IMMI is looking to grow its manufacturing work force. The company has announced plans to hire 55 full-time employees in order to meet demand for its lap-shoulder seat belts used in school buses.

IMMI, which designs, tests and manufactures a variety of advanced safety systems, says the demand comes particularly for its SafeGuard seat belts. The company told Inside INdiana Business in 2015 the company would be prepared to handle the increased demand for its products. 

"More than ever, districts and states are making the decision to improve protection for their students on the school bus by adding seat belts," IMMI Chief Executive Officer Larry Gray said in a news release. "Seat belts reduce injuries, save lives, and on a school bus, they have the added benefit of improving behavior and reducing bullying. As more and more districts and states discover the benefits, demand for our SafeGuard lap-shoulder belts continues to grow. We need to grow our team to keep up with that demand."

IMMI says it is hiring for first and second shift openings. You can learn more about the positions by clicking here.
