The Jackson County Council has approved tax abatement for two companies planning expansions in Crothersville. The Seymour Tribune reports projects from Alabama-based Sims Bark Co. and Tampico Grain LLC total $9.6 million investment and will create more than 20 jobs.
Sims Bark previously received approval from the Jackson County Board of Zoning Appeals for its plans to build a bark mulch manufacturing facility near I-65 in Crothersville. The company is investing more than $8 million for the effort, which will add 20 jobs before the end of the year.
Tampico Grain plans to invest $1.5 million to construct two grain bins on its Crothersville property, according to the publication. The company plans to add one employee as a result of the project, however the investment is also expected to create additional jobs for sister company Wischmeier Trucking.
