Work to resume on Getrag transmission plant

Construction on the Getrag transmission plant north of Indianapolis will resume Monday, now that the German transmission maker and its partner on the project, Chrysler LLC, have settled a dispute.

The companies wouldn’t discuss the issue that caused work on the $530 million project near Tipton to grind to a halt on Dec. 21, according to the Kokomo Tribune. Some of the building’s frame had been completed.

The plant was one of the largest economic development projects announced in the state last year. It will employ 1,400 workers making fuel-efficient dual-clutch transmissions.

The site is at U.S. 31 and State Road 28.
