Modern Door Corporation Expands Indiana Facility

Indiana's Modern Door Corporation is planning to expand its manufacturing operations in Walkerton by creating 20 new jobs by 2013 and investing $770,000 in machinery, equipment, and building improvements. The growth precedes the start of production for a new line of doors. The company currently fabricates and distributes from a 155,000-square-foot facility that has 100 workers.

"To provide our customer base with new designed products, we need to build on our existing work force and improve our process capabilities. With the state of Indiana's focus on job creation, we determined this to be the right location to grow," said the company's General Manager Rick Coffman. "You must bring new and value-added products to market to sustain and increase sales, and the Modern Door team is working hard to make that happen."

The Indiana Economic Development Corporation assisted the company's growth with $45,000 in performance-based tax credits.

Modern Door is a subsidiary of Plyco Corporation, a Wisconsin company that produces steel, aluminum, and fiberglass walk doors and ventilation products.
