Auto supplier inks lease for Indiana business park
Southern Indiana officials say an auto supplier that's signed a lease to move into a business park is expected to bring about 250 new jobs to Jeffersonville this summer.
America Place Business Park officials did not disclose the new lease holder's name during Monday's announcement.
But America Place managing director Debbie Smith says it's an automotive supplier and Fortune 500 company. She says it's expected to bring more than 250 jobs to Jeffersonville and be fully operational by Sept. 1.
Smith tells the News and Tribune the company will occupy a new 150,000-square-foot building in the River Ridge Commerce Center.
That site offers tenants convenient access to the east end portion of the Ohio River Bridges Project and the option of moving cargo by highway, rail or river.(Copyright 2014 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.)
