PIERCETON – The Indiana Economic Development Corp. says auto parts supplier Shiloh Die Cast Midwest will expand two of its northern Indiana plants, creating about 145 jobs by 2018.

The agency said Monday that Shiloh will invest $7.8 million to renovate and equip a 120,000-square-foot plant in Auburn and a 100,000-square-foot plant in the Kosciusko County town of Pierceton.

Shiloh currently employs 86 workers in Auburn and 107 in Pierceton. The company plans to begin hiring for both sites this year.

The IEDC offered Shiloh up to $1 million in conditional tax credits and up to $100,000 in training grants based on the company’s job-creation plans. It says the town of Pierceton has approved tax abatement for Shiloh and Auburn will consider local incentives.
