[IEDC] Japan-Based Automotive Supplier Adding Jobs in Rush County
Start Date: 5/15/2014Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 5/15/2014
Entry Description
RUSHVILLE, Ind. (May 15, 2014) – 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.” 
 
Founded in 1988, INTAT manufactures brake, chassis and power train components for the automotive industry, primarily serving Toyota. With its growth, the company plans to add three production lines in Rushville, which will require supplementing its manufacturing floor with new die quench presses that produce structural steel parts that are stronger, lighter and cheaper than traditional processes. INTAT is a recipient of multiple Excellent Quality Performance Awards from Toyota, as well as the Supplier Quality Award from Subaru of Indiana Automotive.
 
The Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered INTAT Precision, Inc. up to $400,000 in conditional tax credits based on the company's job creation plans. These tax credits are performance-based, meaning until Hoosiers are hired, the company is not eligible to claim incentives. The city of Rushville will consider additional incentives at the request of the Rush County Economic and Community Development Corporation. 
 
“This is an extraordinary and exciting day for our city. INTAT is a remarkable corporate citizen in our community,” said Rushville Mayor Mike Pavey. “We are especially thrilled because this is a new product line being introduced into North America. Rushville competed and won out over other potential sites, and I think this shows Rushville is creating a competitive environment for job creation and is poised for future growth. Further, I think this shows that our strategy of concentrating on growth related to our existing businesses is working."  
 
Just last week, INTAT’s sister companies Aisin Chemical Indiana and Aisin Drivetrain announced plans to invest $45.35 million in their Crothersville operations, together creating up to 74 jobs in the coming years. This follows Governor Mike Pence’s jobs and economic development mission to Japan last year, where he met with executives from Aisin and learned about Aisin’s 10 companies and nine operations across the Hoosier State.

About IEDC
Created in 2005 to replace the former Department of Commerce, the Indiana Economic Development Corporation is governed by a 12-member board chaired by Governor Mike Pence. Victor Smith serves as the Indiana Secretary of Commerce and Eric Doden is the president of the IEDC. 


The IEDC oversees programs enacted by the General Assembly including tax credits, workforce training grants and public infrastructure assistance. All tax credits are performance-based. Therefore, companies must first invest in Indiana through job creation or capital investment before incentives are paid. A company who does not meet its full projections only receives a percentage of the incentives proportional to its actual investment. For more information about IEDC, visit www.iedc.in.gov.
