Indiana auto-parts supplier set to add jobs

September 18, 2012

An auto-parts supplier in northeastern Indiana plans to expand its operations and create as many as 95 new jobs.

The Indiana Economic Development Corp. said Autoform Tool & Manufacturing Inc. currently operates in Fremont and plans to expand to nearby Angola. The company is investing about $10 million to buy, renovate and equip two buildings in Angola. The new site is due to open in January.

The maker of tubular products has more than 170 full-time employees in Fremont. State officials say Autoform will move the current employees about seven miles away to the new site.

The state offered Autoform up to $700,000 in conditional tax credits based on job creation. It says the city of Angola has approved property-tax abatement.
