Advanced Metal Technologies Invests $19 Million on Indiana Operations Center, Creating 350 Jobs

Area Development Online News Desk (05/14/2012)
Advanced Metal Technologies, a member of the Whitesell Group which manufactures complex metal and plastic parts for the automotive and industrial markets, will invest $19 million to lease, renovate and equip the 310,000 square-foot former MKM plant at 100 Technology Way, in Jeffersonville, Indiana, creating 350 new jobs by 2015.

Over the next few years, AMT plans to fill production, engineering, sales, administrative and management positions.

"It is no longer a surprise to anyone when a great company like AMT chooses Indiana, given seven consecutive years of record jobs commitments and top ratings in every analysis of business attractiveness," said Gov. Mitch Daniels. "But you're going to see more and more businesses select Southeast Indiana, which is rapidly becoming one of our most requested sites."

"With our world-class design, engineering and manufacturing capabilities, the future looks bright for AMT," said Neil Whitesell, owner and chief executive officer of Whitesell Group. "Indiana was selected as the location for AMT because of the state's pro-business climate and strong workforce. AMT is committed to the state and will continue to invest, create new jobs and be a new model for American manufacturing."

As part of an incentive package, Indiana Economic Development Corporation provided Advanced Metal Technologies up to $200,000 in training grants based on the company's job creation plans. These incentives are performance-based, meaning until Hoosiers are hired, the company is not eligible to claim incentives.

"The city of Jeffersonville is excited to welcome AMT to southern Indiana," said Jeffersonville Mayor Mike Moore. "To attract a company of this caliber to our corporate community is indicative of Jeffersonville's open arms approach to new business attraction and job creation."
