Newmar tax abatement approved

NAPPANEE, Ind. — Expansion plans are in the works for a Nappanee business following the approval of a five-year tax abatement, reported Goshen News.

Officials with Newmar Industries, 355 Delaware St., want to move and expand the company’s service facility to a location at 1301 Stahly Drive. Newmar is planning to make a $5,062,000 real property investment and a $2,758,000 personal property investment, including manufacturing equipment, logistics, distribution equipment and informational technology equipment. The company expects to add at least 13 full-time positions with an average rate of $33.24 per hour.

At last month’s Nappanee City Council meeting, Joe Shoemaker, vice president of administration told council members the company has a couple of goals with this expansion. He said they want to combine their service operations that are currently “scattered all over” and get the service technicians and parts department all in one place.
