A Wisconsin electrical products manufacturer said it will consolidate distribution operations into Plainfield, a move that’s expected to create 50 jobs in the Hendricks County town by 2015.
Regal Beloit Corp. said it plans to move operations from multiple Midwestern warehouses into a new, 376,000-square-foot warehouse in Browning Investments' and Duke Realty Corp.'s AllPoints Midwest industrial park.
Publicly traded Regal, which makes electric motors, generators, gear drives and electrical controls, plans to invest $8.1 million to buy distribution machinery, software and IT equipment for the new facility, which launched operations this month.

The Indiana Economic Development Corp. offered Regal up to $260,000 in conditional tax credits and up to $8,450 in training grants based on the company's job-creation plans. Plainfield will consider additional property tax abatement
