Winnebago eyes $8.6 million expansion in Middlebury

GOSHEN, Ind. – The Elkhart County Council will consider economic incentives for an $8.6 million expansion by Winnebago during a special meeting Monday, reported The Elkhart Truth.

The company filed an application with the county in December for an economic revitalization area designation for its Middlebury facility, the first step in a proposed property tax phase-in of 10 years for real estate and seven years for new manufacturing equipment. Winnebago is considering a $7.4 million investment in land just east of its C.R. 14 facility and $1.2 million in new equipment.

The expansion would see about 290 jobs retained and another 225 full-time employees added. The new jobs represent an annual payroll of over $16.8 million.
