An Italy-based automotive parts supplier has announced it will build its first U.S. plant in Whitestown.
Technical Sealing System Holding specializes in foam products used in the production of autos, such as sealing gaskets and sound-absorbing pads.
The Boone County Economic Development Corp. said there will be an initial $1 million capital investment. But what is not clear is a further investment or job creation.
“Boone County is uniquely positioned for manufacturing and distribution companies. The decision by TSS to start its first U.S. facility in Whitestown is a reflection of the vast resources our growing county has,” said Molly Whitehead, Boone EDC Executive Director.
TSS said the site is strategic for its growth in the U.S. with immediate access to Interstate 65 and other highways.
“Whitestown is the natural choice for our entrance into the U.S, market as their centralized location makes it easily accessible for quick distribution while having access to a qualified workforce,” said Matteo Caminoli, TSS chief operating officer.
TSS also has plants in Italy, Poland, and Mexico.
