Manufacturer planning expansion, 100 jobs in Boone County

CNH Parts & Service, the product-support division of international manufacturing giant CNH Global NV, plans a $13.3 million expansion in Lebanon that will result in 100 new jobs by 2014, the company announced Monday night.

Racine, Wis.-based CNH, which already has more than 500 full-time employees and 200 contract employees in Lebanon, said it will lease and equip an additional 153,000-square-foot facility in Lebanon Business Park, bringing its total footprint at the site to 1.2 million square feet in three buildings.

When it becomes fully operational in 2014, the new facility will serve as the command-and-control operation for CNH's extensive parts-delivery system.

CNH Global, which makes agricultural and construction equipment, employs 33,800 worldwide. Its products include tractors, combines, loaders, backhoes and excavators. It operates 11 parts-distribution facilities in North America and has a network of 11,500 dealers in 170 countries. The company was formed in 1999 through a merger of New Holland NV and Case Corp.

CNH said it has already begun hiring new material handlers, equipment operators, packagers, and logistics, administrative and support personnel in Lebanon.

The Indiana Economic Development Corp. offered CNH up to $650,000 in conditional tax credits and as much as $100,000 in training grants based on the company's job-creation plans. Lebanon approved additional tax abatement at the request of the Boone County Economic Development Corp.

"This new processing center will significantly enhance and expand the overall capabilities of our North American parts operations," said Scott Harris, vice president of CNH Parts & Service for North America, in a prepared statement. "Its mission is to provide new and highly specialized services that will help our dealers grow their parts sales, even in the most highly competitive segments of our business."

  1. I'm a CPA who works with a wide range of companies (through my firm K.B.Parrish & Co.); however, we work with quite a few car dealerships, so I'm fairly interested in Fatwin (mentioned in the article). Does anyone have much information on that, or a link to such information? Thanks.

  2. Historically high long-term unemployment, unprecedented labor market slack and the loss of human capital should not be accepted as "the economy at work [and] what is supposed to happen" and is certainly not raising wages in Indiana. See Chicago Fed Reserve: goo.gl/IJ4JhQ Also, here's our research on Work Sharing and our support testimony at yesterday's hearing: goo.gl/NhC9W4

  3. I am always curious why teachers don't believe in accountability. It's the only profession in the world that things they are better than everyone else. It's really a shame.

  4. It's not often in Indiana that people from both major political parties and from both labor and business groups come together to endorse a proposal. I really think this is going to help create a more flexible labor force, which is what businesses claim to need, while also reducing outright layoffs, and mitigating the impact of salary/wage reductions, both of which have been highlighted as important issues affecting Hoosier workers. Like many other public policies, I'm sure that this one will, over time, be tweaked and changed as needed to meet Indiana's needs. But when you have such broad agreement, why not give this a try?

  5. I could not agree more with Ben's statement. Every time I look at my unemployment insurance rate, "irritated" hardly describes my sentiment. We are talking about a surplus of funds, and possibly refunding that, why, so we can say we did it and get a notch in our political belt? This is real money, to real companies, large and small. The impact is felt across the board; in the spending of the company, the hiring (or lack thereof due to higher insurance costs), as well as in the personal spending of the owners of a smaller company.
