Indalex expansion to create 62 jobs in Connersville

March 20, 2007

Indalex Inc. of Lincolnshire, Ill., said today it will expand its aluminum extrusion plant in Connersville.

In exchange, the company received government incentives worth nearly $3.4 million.

Indalex plans a 100,000-square-foot addition to its plant to make room for a 6,000-ton extrusion press. The expansion is expected to generate 62 new jobs and $22 million in capital investment. Indalex already employs 61 people in Connersville. It also maintains facilities in Kokomo and Elkhart.

“This new investment at our Connersville facility is the latest in a series of investment in the state that exceeds $43 million in recent years,” said Indalex Senior Vice President for Sales and Marketing Keith Burlingame. “Indiana offers proximity to our key customers in the transportation and distribution markets.”

IEDC offered Indalex $75,000 in training grants and up to $820,000 in tax credits to encourage the expansion. Fayette County also awarded the company property tax abatement worth $2.5 million over the next decade.

The expansion is slated to be finished by the end of the year. Indalex plans to begin hiring new employees and begin full production with its new extrusion press next year.
