Biomet To Expand In Indiana

WARSAW, Ind. (AP) -- Medical device maker Biomet Inc. plans an expansion of its northern Indiana facilities that could add about 280 jobs.

Company officials have discussed the plan with Kosciusko County officials as they've sought tax breaks on the $26 million project.

Biomet attorney Richard Helm says the expansion in Warsaw would retain about 80 jobs and lead to some manufacturing being moved there from New Jersey.

County Council President Harold Jones said he expected the council to approve the tax breaks next month after it gave an economic development area designation for part of Biomet's campus last week.

Biomet vice president Bill Kolter says the project would retain and expand its Warsaw distribution center.
