Marbach America Expands Michigan City, Indiana, Operations
Marbach America Inc. will be investing over $4 million, with plans to hire 30 associates. According to company officials, the location of a new manufacturing facility in the Midwestern U.S. is in order to both meet the demands of their current customers and add additional production capacity for future business growth. The company has 18 manufacturing sites worldwide, including U.S. production operations in the Southeast and Midwest. The company manufactures tools and dies.
Marbach America Inc.’s COO, Fernando Pires said, “Michigan City is very business friendly and made the process seamless. The tax abatement will allow us to further reduce the overall costs of this project and to demonstrate to our parent company in Germany that Michigan City, Indiana remains a favorable location for manufacturing. We are looking forward to being part of your community.”
The tax abatement was approved unanimously by the Michigan City Common Council at a meeting Tuesday night and will save the company about $102,512.00.
“We are delighted that Michigan City continues to attract global companies that are seeking a high quality of life, great workforce, and a progressive community,” said Michigan City Mayor Ron Meer. “My administration has worked tirelessly to promote Michigan City and will continue to work to bring more high paying jobs for our residents.”
City of Michigan City officials and EDCMC staff working with the Indiana Economic Development Corporation representatives and Holladay Properties coordinate this team effort to make this project a success for the State of Indiana.
