Precision Plastics to expand, add 32 new jobs in Columbia City

Greater Fort Wayne Business Weekly

Local manufacturing business, Precision Plastics Inc., recently announced plans to expand its facility, adding new equipment and 32 new jobs.

Precision Plastics, located at 900 W. Connexion Way in Columbia City, began in 1955 with just two employees and two injection molding presses. Now, the company operates an 87,000-square-foot facility, has more than 185 employees and is one of the top 10 largest employers in Whitley County.

Precision Plastics provides high-quality, and highly engineered molded components for an array of industries including: automotive with products ranging from airbag safety components to interior cosmetic covers; industrial products such as agricultural and pump components; aerospace and defense products, and consumer products such as caps and shipping cases. The company will add new equipment, including several injection molding machines, and will also build an 11,900-square-foot warehouse for additional space.

The city of Columbia City approved a 10-year tax abatement in support of the project, at the request of the Whitley County EDC. The Indiana Economic Development Corp. is offering up to $150,000 in conditional training grants from the Skills Enhancement Fund, and Northeast Indiana Works will assist with on-the-job training scholarships, computer and core competency training, and customized recruitment and employment services.
