DeKalb Molded Plastics Co. is investing more than $1.2 million and creating up to 20 jobs in Butler, Indiana. The company produces molded and structural foams and plastic products.

"We have proven we can survive during the tough economic times and have readied the company for expansion as recovery occurs. We continue to invest in our people, as well as our equipment and facility. We're excited for that growth here in Butler," said Rick Walters, president of DeKalb. "We appreciate that Indiana values that DeKalb Molded Plastics has been doing business in Indiana for more than 30 years and supported us as we considered our growth opportunities."

The Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered DeKalb up to $100,000 in performance-based tax credits and up to $40,000 in training grants. DeKalb County will consider additional property tax abatement at the request of the DeKalb County Economic Development Partnership.
