ELKHART, Ind. (AP) -- Auto parts maker Tenneco Inc. will add two catalytic converter manufacturing lines to its Elkhart exhaust plant as part of a $6 million expansion expected to be finished by year's end.
Spokesman Jim Spangler says the company has already started hiring, and the expansion will add 60 employees to a work force of 75.
The Illinois-based company makes mufflers, exhaust products and converters at the plant, which sends the parts to other Tenneco operations that supply automakers.
The plant will use a $112,500 grant from Indiana's Skills Enhancement Fund to provide training in hydraulics, robotics and blueprint reading for the expansion.
Tenneco also has Indiana locations in Evansville, Ligonier and Angola.
