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. If what you stated is true, then this article is entirely inaccurate. "State sells bonds" is same as "State borrows money". Supposedly the company will "pay for them". But since we are paying the company, we are still paying for this road with borrowed money, even though the state has $2 billion in the bank.

    2. Andrew hit the nail on the head. AMTRAK provides terrible service and that is why the state has found a contractor to improve the service. More trips, on-time performance, better times, cleanliness and adequate or better restrooms. WI-FI and food service will also be provided. Transit from outlying areas will also be provided. I wouldn't take it the way it is but with the above services and marketing of the service,ridership will improve and more folks will explore Indy and may even want to move here.

    3. They could take the property using eminent domain and save money by not paying the church or building a soccer field and a new driveway. Ctrwd has monthly meetings open to all customers of the district. The meetings are listed and if the customers really cared that much they would show. Ctrwd works hard in every way they can to make sure the customer is put first. Overflows damage the surrounding environment and cost a lot of money every year. There have been many upgrades done through the years to help not send flow to Carmel. Even with the upgrades ctrwd cannot always keep up. I understand how a storage tank could be an eye sore, but has anyone thought to look at other lift stations or storage tanks. Most lift stations are right in the middle of neighborhoods. Some close to schools and soccer fields, and some right in back yards, or at least next to a back yard. We all have to work together to come up with a proper solution. The proposed solution by ctrwd is the best one offered so far.

    4. Fox has comments from several people that seem to have some inside information. I would refer to their website. Changed my whole opionion of this story.

    5. This place is great! I'm piggy backing and saying the Cobb salad is great. But the ribs are awesome. $6.49 for ribs and 2 sides?! They're delicious. If you work downtown, head over there.
