Area Development
Ventra Angola, an automotive parts manufacturer and subsidiary of Flex-N-Gate, will invest $8.1 million to expand its manufacturing plant in Angola, Indiana.

The company plans to expand its 128,000-square foot plant in the northeastern part of the state, 39 miles north of Fort Wayne, and add new equipment with incentives provided by the Indiana Economic Development Corporation.

As an incentive the Indiana Economic Development Corp. will provide up to $650,000 in conditional tax credits and up to $25,000 in training grants, if the company meets job creation goals of adding 88 associates in three years.

The company plans to start installing new equipment at the plant in the first quarter of 2017 and increase production in October 2017.
