An Indiana-based wooden pallet manufacturer plans to expand by spending $2.7 million to buy and equip a new facility in northern Indiana.

Calumet Pallet Co. said Tuesday that it expects to start start operations by January at its new 93,000 square-foot plant in Michigan City that will have about 14 acres of outdoor storage space.

The company now has 35 workers and says it plans on adding up to 115 additional production and administrative workers by 2016.

Calumet Pallet, founded in 1975, makes and repairs shipping pallets and also recycles unusable pallets into landscape mulch, playground surfacing and animal bedding products.

The Indiana Economic Development Corp. offered Calumet Pallet up to $600,000 in conditional tax credits and up to $60,000 in training grants based on the company's job-creation plans. Michigan City approved additional tax abatement.
