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.
