Mishawaka Sheet Metal, a distributor and fabricator of aluminum, steel and sheet metal products, is investing $1.5 million to equip its approximately 75,000 square-foot Elkhart facility. Experiencing increased demand from area RV, cargo trailer, horse trailer and shuttle bus manufacturers, the company is currently installing an additional laser cutting machine and a cut-to-length line to increase production.
“Given our commitment to the local industries and strategic location, we felt it was important to continue to work close with our business partners by keeping our operations located in northern Indiana,” said Jeff Troyer, president and chief executive officer of Mishawaka Sheet Metal.
Founded in 1991, Mishawaka Sheet Metal currently employs 60 people. The company plans to create up to 20 new jobs by 2018 and has already begun hiring production technicians and metal fabrication equipment operators.
“This is excellent news for Mishawaka Sheet Metal – another successful Elkhart County company is seizing business opportunities, investing in equipment and providing new jobs for the citizens of the community!” said Randy Yohn, Elkhart County Councilman.
