Michigan City Paper Box Co. has received tax abatement to expand its facility. The more than century-old company plans to invest $1.2 million to add new technology and a small number of jobs.
The investment will be made over the next few months by the paper box manufacturer. The Michigan City Council unanimously approved the tax abatement earlier this week.
"Our company is committed to manufacturing the highest quality retail packaging products in the industry and upholding an unparalleled standard of customer service," said Al Hoodwin, president of Michigan City Paper Box Co. "Utilizing state-of-the-art technology, we will continue to expand our products and services to meet the ever-changing needs of our customers all over the world. We are proud to call Michigan City, Indiana home."
The company serves a number of big-name clients, including Walmart, Gap, K-Mart, Banana Republic and Koh’s.
