A Nebraska-based grain hopper manufacturer plans to open a retail and repair facility in Whitestown.
Timpte Industries Inc. has requested a real property tax abatement from the town of Whitestown as an incentive for building the 12,100-square-foot facility at 3945 S. Indianapolis Road.
The facility would be constructed near Exit 133 off Interstate 65. Timpte said it plans to spend about $2.2 million on the project.
It would be Timpte’s first Indiana operation and would create 14 jobs in Whitestown, paying an average wage of $26.62 an hour, with benefits valued at an additional $5 to $8 an hour, town documents state. The company would hire skilled, clerical and salaried employees.
