190 New Jobs Coming to Indiana

I saw this over at

ELKHART, Ind. (May 29, 2008) - Governor Mitch Daniels joined executives from consumer products manufacturer KIK Custom Products today to announce the company's plans to consolidate some of its contract manufacturing of personal care and household products in Elkhart, expand its operations here and create approximately 190 new jobs by the end of 2009.

The maker of brand name personal care and household products for global companies such as Johnson & Johnson, L'Oreal, Proctor & Gamble, and Unilever, is expected to invest more than $7 million to build and equip three new production lines, three new gashouses and a new compounding operation at the company's existing 1.2 million square-foot facility.

"We continue to outrun all of our Midwestern competitors for new job-creating investments from great companies like KIK Custom Products, but we can't let up for a minute. We must continue to look for and land new opportunities to further strengthen and develop Indiana's economy," said Daniels.
