California Manufacturer to Onshore Jobs in Cass County

Posted: Updated:
LOGANSPORT -

A California company says it will relocate some manufacturing functions from China to Logansport. Lytx Inc. plans to invest $50 million into moving event recorder manufacturing to the Cal-Comp USA plant in Cass County, creating 70 jobs. It says initial work in Logansport will begin next month and full production is expected to ramp up in March.

Cal-Comp USA, a subsidiary of a Thailand company, acquired the CCIN facilities in Logansport from its previous parent, Spectragraphics Corp., in 2010. It has customers in industries including aerospace, automotive, communications, defense, industrial controls, medical, renewable energy, security and transportation.

Lytx Senior Director of Operations and Supply Chain Jim McDaniel says "bringing these jobs to the U.S. makes business sense for Lytx in a number of ways. With this move, we're actually able to reduce our costs by limiting import tariffs and avoiding overseas transport costs, while still paying above market wages to Logansport factory workers. Indiana is also home to many of our clients and lies within the heart of commercial transportation."

Lytx event recorders will be made in Indiana and Cal-Comp USA's North America Chief Operating Officer Ron Rehberger says the products are "the essence of sophisticated technology and our staff in Logansport has a solid track record of producing high reliability products making this a perfect fit between our organizations."
