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. Can your dog sign a marriage license or personally state that he wishes to join you in a legal union? If not then no, you cannot marry him. When you teach him to read, write, and speak a discernible language, then maybe you'll have a reasonable argument. Thanks for playing!

  2. Look no further than Mike Rowe, the former host of dirty jobs, who was also a classically trained singer.

  3. Current law states income taxes are paid to the county of residence not county of income source. The most likely scenario would be some alteration of the income tax distribution formula so money earned in Marion co. would go to Marion Co by residents of other counties would partially be distributed to Marion co. as opposed to now where the entirety is held by the resident's county.

  4. This is more same-old, same-old from a new generation of non-progressive 'progressives and fear mongers. One only needs to look at the economic havoc being experienced in California to understand the effect of drought on economies and people's lives. The same mindset in California turned a blind eye to the growth of population and water needs in California, defeating proposal after proposal to build reservoirs, improve water storage and delivery infrastructure...and the price now being paid for putting the demands of a raucous minority ahead of the needs of many. Some people never, never learn..

  5. I wonder if I can marry him too? Considering we are both males, wouldn't that be a same sex marriage as well? If they don't honor it, I'll scream discrimination just like all these people have....
