C&R Plating Plans Columbia City, Indiana, Manufacturing Plant

Specialty finishing and metal plating company C&R Plating, a wholly-owned subsidiary of KC Jones Plating Company, will construct and equip a 7,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in Columbia City, Indiana. The project will connect two existing structures and bring the company’s total footprint to 37,000 square feet.

According to state economic development officials, C&R Plating will add a new highly- automated, computer-controlled plating line that will allow it to double its plating capacity. The addition will help its clients in the agriculture, commercial, automotive, defense and electronics industries increase the wearability, corrosion protection and the appearance of their products. With construction already underway and the new facility expected to be operating by September, the company plans to create up to 29 new jobs in general plating, shift supervision and quality control by 2017.

As an incentive, C&R Plating Corporation was offered up to $120,000 in conditional tax credits and up to $45,000 in training grants based on the company’s job creation plans. These incentives , offered by the Indiana Economic Development Corporation, are performance-based, meaning until Hoosiers are hired, the company is ineligible to claim incentives. In addition, the city of Columbia City approved additional tax abatement for C&R Plating Corporation at the request of the Whitley County Economic Development Corporation.
