Auto Parts Manufacturer Expanding in Indiana

Adkev Inc., a manufacturer of plastic injection molded components and assemblies for automobiles, will invest more than $1.1 million to purchase and install additional automation features and production monitoring systems at its facility in Monticello, Indiana, according to the Indiana governor's office. The company will add at least 20 new jobs as part of the project. "Adkev's growth is built on our ability to continually exceed our customers' expectations," says Cathy Rheude, the company's director of personnel. "This is possible only through increased efficiency in production and keeping up with advanced manufacturing technology. We have to invest in our associates via training and the purchase of capital to develop our technological niche." Adkev has received a $64,000 grant from the state for training programs.
