COLUMBUS, Ind. (AP) -- A company that makes child car seats and strollers plans to expand its operations in southern Indiana and possibly add more than 90 jobs in the coming years.
Dorel Juvenile Group announced Tuesday that it would invest nearly $21 million over the next four years to start a new car-seat development center and increase its manufacturing capacity in Columbus. Company officials say some of the positions will be moved from Dorel's headquarters in Foxboro, Mass.
Plans for the new design center include a crash test sled and side-impact testing machines. Dorel currently makes 90 percent of its car seats at the Columbus facility, where it has about 850 workers.
