INTAT expanding, adding jobs

RUSHVILLE – INTAT Precision, Inc., a supplier to automotive original equipment manufacturers, announced plans today to expand its operations here, creating up to 40 new jobs by 2016.

The company, which is a subsidiary of Japan-based Aisin Group Companies, will invest $22.7 million in its Rushville operations. During its first phase of growth, INTAT will renovate and equip its 375,000 square-foot production facility to produce structural steel parts for the automotive industry, which Aisin is currently manufacturing in Japan. Within the next two years, the company plans to construct a new 50,000 square-foot facility to house the expanded operations.

“Japanese businesses are on the rise in Indiana, with Hoosiers enjoying an upsurge in growth and investment from these companies in all corners of the state,” said Eric Doden, president of the Indiana Economic Development Corporation. “Indiana is proud to be a state that works for their investment, with a business climate that promotes growth and job creation. As our largest Asian trading partner, it is evident that Indiana’s bond with Japan is strong and only growing stronger.”

INTAT, which currently employs approximately 350 full-time Indiana associates, plans to begin hiring for its first expansion phase this December. Interested applicants may apply at the Rushville WorkOne office or online at www.indianacareerconnect.com.

“INTAT is excited to bring this new production process into the Rushville operation, which will generate job opportunities,” said Brad Rist, vice president of INTAT. “This is the result of the level of performance that has been achieved at the Rushville operation. Our operation has really stepped up to meet several challenges the last few years and we have demonstrated a confidence internally that made the decision to expand here the best choice. We believe that this decision coincides with a spirit of good things to come to the Rushville community. We are excited to be a part of it.”
