"CSP's growth reflects the proven strength of the Hoosier State's automotive industry, a sector hard hit by the sluggish national economy," said Dan Hasler, Secretary of Commerce and chief executive officer of the Indiana Economic Development Corp, in a news release. "However, the industry is on the rebound with Indiana leading the recovery thanks to our work in preserving a low-tax, pro-business environment,"

CSP currently has 286 full-time employees in Huntington and has already begun hiring additional production, logistics, engineering and administrative associates.

Founded in 1969, today CSP employs more than 1,890 people at six production facilities across the Midwest.

The city of Huntington will consider additional property tax abatement at the request of Huntington County Economic Development.
