Western Indiana Machining Company to More than Double Its Operations, Workforce

WEST TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (April 23, 2008) - Marion Manufacturing, a woman-owned family business that provides precision machining services to the heavy equipment, aerospace and military markets, announced today it will expand its operations here and more than double its workforce by 2011.


The business will invest more than $2 million to build and equip a 24,000-square-foot addition to its existing 20,000-square-foot manufacturing and distribution center that will house a new automated robotic work cell and new computer-controlled lathes and mills.


"Helping homegrown Hoosier companies like Marion Manufacturing expand and modernize is key to growing our economy and providing more jobs for hard-working Hoosiers," said Governor Mitch Daniels. 


Marion Manufacturing currently employs 35 associates in West Terre Haute and plans to hire an additional 47 machinists, engineers and quality technicians starting in 2009 to meet the increasing demand for its services.


"Marion Manufacturing's success and continued growth are due to our companywide goals of supplying only the highest quality machined components and the dedication of our workforce to achieve total customer satisfaction," said Tammy Marion, president. "As a native Hoosier, it's great to see the resourcefulness of local and state governments to support our expansion plans and allow us to grow our business here at home."


Founded in 1996, the ISO 9001:2000-certified operation provides machining services to heavy equipment manufacturers such as Caterpillar, as well as various automotive, aerospace, agriculture and medical clients.


The Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered Marion Manufacturing up to $175,000 in performance-based tax credits and up to $30,000 in training grants based on the company's job creation plans. The Town of West Terre Haute will provide the company with property tax abatement.


"I've known the Marion family for many, many years," said Vigo County Commissioner Judith Anderson.  "Marion Manufacturing is a true Hoosier entrepreneurial success story.  The company's on-going success is well deserved." 


The announcement of Marion Manufacturing's expansion in Vigo County is the second jobs announcement in the western Indiana county in less than three months.  In February, Applied Extrusion Technologies, one of the nation's largest manufacturers of plastic film packaging products, announced plans to consolidate its U.S. manufacturing operations in Terre Haute, creating 60 new jobs.
