Indiana factory project continues despite CEO change

GOSHEN, Ind. (AP) — An economic development official says a truck body manufacturer is going ahead with plans for a northern Indiana expansion despite the recent resignation of the company's CEO.

Goshen community development director Mark Brinson says Supreme Corp. has started some early work on its planned $7 million project to expand its plant in the Elkhart County city and buy new equipment.

The Goshen-based company announced in March that it expected to add perhaps 350 jobs over the next three years.

Brinson tells The Elkhart Truth that city officials have met regularly with company executives and aren't concerned about the expansion even though Kim Korth stepped down as Supreme's CEO since it was announced.

The Goshen City Council this week approved a nearly $700,000 tax abatement for the expansion.
