Elkhart County-based inTech Trailers Inc. is planning to add 60 jobs and expand its Nappanee operations. The aluminum trailer manufacturer says it will invest $1.7 million into a new facility to handle a motorsports production line.
inTech currently employs 80 and says the new jobs are expected to pay 40 percent higher than the average job in the state. The new 42,000 square-foot facility will be built on 3.5 acres next to its current campus. It will include new production, welding, crane and hydraulic equipment.
The company expects to begin adding production and office staff in January. Chief Executive Officer Adam Maxwell says "Indiana is the perfect place to attract top talent for our business. Here in Nappanee, we’re proud to have a strong team of skilled engineers, craftsmen and professionals helping us build custom trailers that are sold around the world. And with Indiana’s world-class business climate, we couldn’t have found a better place to grow and thrive."
The company has been offered up to $450,000 in conditional incentives from the Indiana Economic Development Corp.
