Sperry & Rice Bringing 40 Jobs to Brookville, Indiana By End of Year

Sperry & Rice Manufacturing, a maker of rubber products, is expanding in Brookville, Indiana, creating 40 jobs by year's end. The company is consolidating some operations from its Killbuck, Ohio facility.

"This consolidation allows the company to balance production and focus each plant on its process strengths to provide a higher level of service to our customers," said Jim Gregory, president and CEO of Sperry & Rice.

The Indiana Economic Development Corporation has extended the company up to $200,000 in tax credits. Franklin County will consider additional property tax abatement at the request of the Franklin County Economic Development Commission. And the city of Lawrenceburg's Regional Economic Development Grant program has awarded the company a $500,000 grant.

Sperry & Rice makes rubber seals and hoses for the appliance, automotive, truck, and bus industries.
