Marson International, a state-of-the-art tube fabricator, will invest $2 million and expand its operations center in Elkhart, Indiana.
The enhanced facility will also allow Marson to meet increased demand across the U.S. for its tubing fabrication services, which range from rapid prototyping, including low- and mid-volume production, to high-volume runs requiring manufacturing cells.
"We're excited to deepen our roots in Indiana and make this investment in the Elkhart community," said Jason Newburn, founder and vice president of Marson. "This investment will allow us to increase our production and increase our offerings to customers. With Indiana being a manufacturing-focused state with a highly-skilled workforce, this couldn't be a better location for us to continue to grow."
The Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered Marson International LLC up to $125,000 in conditional tax credits based on the company’s planned capital investment in Indiana. These tax credits are performance-based, meaning the company is eligible to claim incentives once investments are made. The city of Elkhart supports the project at the request of the Economic Development Corporation of Elkhart County.
"The continued growth and expansion from companies like Marson demonstrates Indiana’s positive economic momentum and strong workforce pipeline," said Indiana Secretary of Commerce Jim Schellinger. "It's exciting to see another Indiana-grown company expanding and thriving right here in their home state, even in the midst of challenging times. We look forward to supporting their success for years to come.”
Founded in 2002, Marson works closely with customers in a variety of industries including automotive, recreational vehicles, construction machinery, agricultural, marine, mass transit and power generation. The company's capabilities include bending, fabricating and tube lasering from 1/2 inch to 8-inch outside diameter.
"We're excited Marson is continuing to expand right here in Elkhart," said Elkhart Mayor Rod Roberson. "The company offers quality career opportunities for Elkhart’s talented workforce and is a great community partner. We look forward to their continued growth and success."
