Edinburgh company plans for expansion, new jobs

A plastic injection molding company in Edinburgh is planning a $3.4 million investment in new equipment.

Company spokeswoman Penny Grubbs with the George Utz company joined Jason Hester of the Greater Columbus Economic Development Corporation at Monday evening’s Bartholomew County Council work session. She explained that the investment will retain 87 jobs and create 14 new ones.

The new positions in production are expected to pay $16.75 per hour.

The company is asking for a 10-year tax abatement on the investment.
County Council is set to consider the request at their regular meeting Tuesday.
