Fort Wayne Startup to Break Ground on HQ

Posted: Updated:
FORT WAYNE -

Officials in Fort Wayne will Thursday break ground on the headquarters for an aluminum anodizing startup. Northern Indiana Anodize is investing $8 million in the facility and plans to add nearly 50 jobs by the end of 2021.

The 47,000-square-foot facility is located on Bluffton Road just off I-469 and is expected to be complete in March. Greater Fort Wayne Inc. says the company hopes to eventually grow to 150 employees.

"We've been working hard behind the scenes to get the business off the ground, and starting construction makes us feel like the work is paying off," said Bruce Fogler, chief financial officer at NIA. "This building will allow us to provide top-quality service that's in high demand in our region. We can't wait to get started.”

NIA says the facility will house anodizing services that will be used for the automotive, construction, boating, and industrial markets throughout the Midwest. Anodizing involves dipping aluminum parts into multiple chemical baths in order to increase wear resistance and corrosion protection.

In particular, the impact of quality of place on talent attraction and retention in a geographic area cannot be ignored. The future of every community is dependent on quality of place. Like many Midwestern states, Indiana is not growing at the same pace as areas in the southern and western regions of the United States.
