Auto parts manufacturer plans 325 jobs in Anderson

Automobile parts supplier Greenville Technology Inc. plans to open a $21.4 million plant in Anderson, creating 325 jobs by 2016, economic development officials announced Tuesday morning.

Ohio-based GTI is one of Honda's largest suppliers of auto plastics components in North America. The 150,000-square-foot an injection molding and assembly plant will be built on 25 acres at the Flagship Certified Technology Park near Interstate 69. Construction could begin this month and production could start as early as January, the company said.

GTI, which has 840 employees in Ohio, said it already has begun the process of hiring management, and technical and operations employees for the Anderson facility.

The 25-year-old company is a subsidiary of Tokyo-based Moriroku Technology, a 350-year-old Japanese plastics manufacturer with operations in Japan, China, India, Philippines and North America.

The Indiana Economic Development Corp. offered GTI up to $1.7 million in conditional tax credits and up to $100,000 in training grants based on the company's job-creation plans. The city of Anderson granted additional financial incentives.

GTI, based in Greenville, Ohio, produces more than 2 million automobile components a month, primarily for the Honda Accord, CRV, Civic and Acura.

"This new plant is needed due to capacity limitations and a tight labor market in Greenville, Ohio," said Bill LaFramboise, executive vice president of GTI, in a prepared statement. "It will also provide us with improved efficiencies and flexibilities to meet our customer's needs. We chose Indiana, and specifically Anderson, because of the availability of a good site, cooperative government and a plentiful work force."

    1. I am so impressed that the smoking ban FAILED in Kokomo! I might just move to your Awesome city!

    2. way to much breweries being built in indianapolis. its going to be saturated market, if not already. when is enough, enough??

    3. This house is a reminder of Hamilton County history. Its position near the interstate is significant to remember what Hamilton County was before the SUPERBROKERs, Navients, commercial parks, sprawling vinyl villages, and acres of concrete retail showed up. What's truly Wasteful is not reusing a structure that could still be useful. History isn't confined to parks and books.

    4. To compare Connor Prairie or the Zoo to a random old house is a big ridiculous. If it were any where near the level of significance there wouldn't be a major funding gap. Put a big billboard on I-69 funded by the tourism board for people to come visit this old house, and I doubt there would be any takers, since other than age there is no significance whatsoever. Clearly the tax payers of Fishers don't have a significant interest in this project, so PLEASE DON'T USE OUR VALUABLE MONEY. Government money is finite and needs to be utilized for the most efficient and productive purposes. This is far from that.

    5. I only tried it 2x and didn't think much of it both times. With the new apts plus a couple other of new developments on Guilford, I am surprised it didn't get more business. Plus you have a couple of subdivisions across the street from it. I hope Upland can keep it going. Good beer and food plus a neat environment and outdoor seating.
