Local Manufacturer Expanding

(La Porte County, IN) - A La Porte County company is planning to expand. Alexander Chemical at the Kingsbury Industrial Park was granted a tax abatement on an over $6 million investment.


The 10-year tax abatement was unanimously approved Monday night by the La Porte County Council.


Plant Manager Rob Davidson said about 70-percent of what the company makes is for water purification and sanitization for hospitals, schools, and residences. Davidson said the company, founded in 1950, will expand its headquarters and maintenance department.


“We want to build a new headquarters and maintenance facility to improve the site, attract talent and facilitate growth within our facility,” according to Davidson.

More than 40 people currently work at Alexander Chemical, and six new jobs are projected to be added from the expansion.
