NTN Driveshaft gearing up for jobs in Anderson
ANDERSON, Ind. — Automotive component maker NTN Driveshaft is beginning construction on its new manufacturing plant in Anderson. The company is investing $130 million in the project, which will create 510 jobs.
“Despite several recent expansions, our manufacturing plant in Columbus has exceeded capacity due to growth in the automotive industry and the resulting needs of our customers,” said Jim Riggs, president of NTN Driveshaft. “After conducting an exhaustive multi-state search, we selected Indiana for this new facility because of its business-friendly climate and policies, the availability of skilled labor and the strong Hoosier work ethic. Thanks to the coordination of support from the city of Anderson and the state, we are confident that this expansion will drive the success of NTN forward for years to come.”
NTN Driveshaft expects to have the plant in operation by April 2017. The Anderson operation will be the company’s fourth manufacturing plant in Indiana. For more information on employment with NTN, visit the company’s Careers page here.
