A Whitley County printing company has announced plans to expand its operations and add staff. Columbia City-based ChromaSource generates color cards for several national paint suppliers.

The custom printer says increasing demand for their products means it needs to add some new equipment and workers.

“We are experiencing unprecedented growth at ChromaSource and we plan to hire and train employees who are interested in learning the skills to operate the new equipment and be a part of our growth,” said Chromasource CEO, Jason Brooks. 

Currently, the company employs more than 150 employees. It will be adding an unannounced number of new employees. It will also be adding state-of-the-art collating equipment to increase productivity.

With the additional staff and new systems, ChromaSource received a $20,000 grant from the Whitley County Redevelopment Commission. They money will help cover the costs associated with training new and current workers “This is one instance where we felt that investing in the local workforce to operate state-of-the-art equipment will be good for everyone,” said Jim Argerbright, chairman of the Whitley County Redevelopment Commission.

Brooks says as the company continues to grow current production, it will also have the capacity to compete for additional product lines.

And you won’t have to climb a mountain to do it!
