A Michigan City-based company plans to spend $769,000 to set up a new plant in Kingsbury, which will result in 50 new jobs by 2016. The new Dwyer Instruments plant in the Kingsbury Industrial Park should be in operation by 2016. It will produce sensor products for the fire pump, industrial and chemical industries. The company will start hiring assembly instrument builders and technicians in October. The state offered Dwyer $300,000 in conditional tax credits, which the company will only receive once it meets its stated hiring goals. Company officials say Indiana’s business-friendly climate and the proximity to Purdue North Central were also factors in their decision to expand in LaPorte County.

The company has locations in Kingsbury, Wakarusa, Wolcott, Michigan City and six other sites around the world.
