LEBANON, Ind. -

A central Indiana maker of frozen bakery products plans to add 219 new jobs by 2017.

The Indiana Economic Development Corp. says Brownsburg-based Maplehurst Bakeries will invest $78 million to renovate and equip a 180,000 square-foot plant in Lebanon to house its warehouse, distribution and manufacturing operations for cakes and cupcakes. It says the new plant should begin operations next March and that Maplehurst plans to begin hiring in December,

The IEDC said it offered Maplehurst more than $1 million in conditional tax credits and up to $200,000 in training grants.

Maplehurst, a division of Canada-based Weston Foods, currently has more than 1,000 employees nationwide, including more than 300 full-time workers in Indiana. It also makes doughnuts, pies, bread and other products for in-store and food service bakeries.
