Indiana injection molding plant plans expansion

An injection molding plant in Indiana has plans to expand and add as many as 102 jobs by 2018.

The Indiana Economic Development Corp. said Carrera Manufacturing Inc. will invest about $1.3 million to build and equip a cleanroom in its 80,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in Portland, about 40 miles south of Fort Wayne and 90 miles northeast of Indianapolis. The cleanroom is expected to be operating next spring and allow Carrera to broaden its finish and coating production capabilities.

Carrera now has 82 full-time workers and plans to begin hiring more employees by the end of the year.

The Indiana Economic Development Corp. offered Carrera up to $300,000 in conditional tax credits and $200,000 in training grants. Jay County will consider other tax incentives.

Carrera was founded in Indiana in 1961 and has been in Portland since 1978.
