Tax Abatement Sought for Plant Upgrade

(New Carlisle, IN) - A factory in New Carlisle has plans to upgrade its plant.   The proposed 13 million dollar investment is planned at Unifrax.


Officials said over 100 people work there right now and 20 additional full time jobs would be added from the expansion.  The company is looking to bring a new manufacturing process to the plant.


The expansion could hinge on a request for tax abatement to be considered by the St. Joseph County Council following public hearings scheduled for May 11 and June 8.


Unifrax is a leading producer of high temperature insulation products for industrial use.
