ETNA GREEN - Warsaw-based Winona PVD Coatings LLC says a previously-announced production capacity expansion will result in up to 50 new jobs by the end of the year. The company plans to invest more than $10 million to add a production line at its Kosciusko County facilities.

The company said last week it would add a fourth line at its Etna Green facility to allow it to respond more quickly to customer demand. Winona PVD, which currently employs 155 associates in Indiana, plans to begin hiring for production, quality, supervision and maintenance positions this summer. The company also has operations in Elkhart and southern Michigan.

Winona PVD Coatings provides bright finish coatings for the automotive wheel industry. It serves original equipment manufacturers and aftermarket suppliers throughout the world.

The Indiana Economic Development Corp. offered Winona up to $275,000 in conditional tax credits based on the job creation plans. The city of Warsaw is also considering incentives.
