“While Monticello was one option for expansion, our corporate team was also being asked regularly to consider opening up new facilities in Tennessee, Alabama and Mexico,” said Jeremy Kyser, plant manager at Adkev’s Monticello facility, in a release. “With the support of our local and state officials and suppliers such as NIPSCO, we are successfully finding opportunities to improve our competitiveness and continue to grow in Indiana.”
Adkev was founded in 1987 by Gary and Cathy Rheude. The company manufactures custom injection and insert parts and assembles other parts for the automotive, appliance and electrical industries.
The company, which is a tier 2 supplier to most automotive original equipment manufacturers, produces HVAC and interior and exterior car components, as well as coil windings used in light ballast assemblies across the country.
