Delphi plans Kokomo lab as part of $25M project

Delphi Automotive plans to construct a new engineering lab building as part of a $25 million project in central Indiana.

The company said the new facility will be built next to its Delphi Electronics & Safety corporate technology center in
Kokomo. Delphi vice president Jeff Owens said  the new engineering lab and a smaller utility building will help consolidate
all of its 1,400 employees in Kokomo.

Construction is expected to start this year and be completed by the end of 2011.

Company spokeswoman Linda Ferries says the expansion won't result in any immediate hiring.___
