HUNTINGTON, Ind. (AP) -- The Indiana Economic Development Corporation says Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems will create 46 jobs in the next three years by expanding its plant in Huntington.
The $8.3 million expansion is expected to be completed by 2011 at the northeastern Indiana plant, which employs 400.
The IEDC and company officials announced the plan Thursday.
The expansion comes after Bendix won contracts with Hagerstown-based garbage truck maker Autocar LLC. The IEDC says Bendix will also increase production of integrated control modules for school bus manufacturer Blue Bird.
Bendix makes safety equipment, air brake charging systems and other equipment for commercial vehicles. It is a subsidiary of German brake system manufacturer Knorr-Bremse Group.
The state offered Bendix nearly $500,000 in incentives based on its job creation plans.
