Other available buildings did not meet the company’s needs, she added, like ceiling height, amount of doors, electrical capabilities and floor thickness.
“Fortunately they did find one in Miami County, only a 15-minute drive from here,” Neininger said. “I see this opportunity helping add more employees to this facility and since they have some more room, I could see adding other contracts and adding other businesses.”
While the expansion couldn’t take place in Cass County, Neininger said it still aids the region economically.
“It’s a true sign of how regionalism in economic development works,” she said. “We could have lost them completely, they could have said they were going to Huntington all the way but because of us working in the region with Miami County, they had a building over there and to get a facility within driving distance of Logansport is phenomenal.”
