Transit supplier invests $6.7 in 40-job Pierceton project

A Kosciusko County transportation industry supplier is investing $6.7 million in a project that will create 40 new jobs by 2016, state and county officials announced today.

Wickliffe, Ohio-based OMCO will renovate its existing custom metal forming factory in Pierceton and install additional equipment there.

The company employs more than 500 nationally, including more than 120 in Indiana. Hiring for the new positions – including machine operator, maintenance worker, tool and die specialist and material handler – will begin next year. Elwood Staffing is handling applications for the manufacturer.

The Indiana Economic Development Corp. has offered OMCO up to $325,000 in conditional tax credits on the project, based on the company’s job creation plans.
