HUNTINGTON -

A small manufacturing business in Huntington is staying put with a new local owner. Reber Enterprises LLC has acquired Lime City Manufacturing Co. Inc., which was founded in 1941. Huntington County Economic Development Executive Director Mark Wickersham tells Inside INdiana Business all 15 current employees will be retained and the Lime City brand will remain.

He says terms of the deal have not been announced. Wickersham says a Michigan company that would've relocated the business also considered acquiring Lime City Manufacturing. "This company could have very easily left town. Our Community is very lucky Mandy and Cory (Reber) live here and have been such a big part of helping people in Huntington. And now they've made this investment, too! They are wonderful corporate citizens and have a Community which truly cares about their success," said in a news release.

Lime City Manufacturing produces components for industries including agriculture, automotive, consumer electronics and recreational vehicles. Its products include terminals, brackets, shallow drawn components, automotive chassis, interior support brackets, mold inserts, small laminations and assemblies.

The HCEDC says the Rebers are well-known entrepreneurs in the Huntington County city and own Reber Repair. Mandy also serves as executive director of the Boys & Girls Club of Huntington, which recently launched a $3 million expansion.
