ANGOLA — Economic development once again was a common theme at Monday’s Angola Common Council meeting as for companies were thanked for continuing to invest in the city.

Council granted tax abatements to two companies planning to make $930,000 and $1 million in investments.

Dave Koenig, executive director of Steuben County Economic Development Corp. reviewed what each company is doing with council.

IMP Holdings and C&K Tool requested and were granted the abatements that would add a total of 15 jobs.

IMP Holdings, also known as Indiana Machine Products, 406 Growth Parkway and 101 Industrial Drive, were granted two separate abatements, each for an eight-year duration. The first will include $80,000 in roof repairs at the Growth Parkway location and $50,000 in Industrial Drive building repairs.

IMP also received another tax abatement at 409 Growth Parkway on personal property through the addition of $800,000 in new manufacturing machinery and equipment.

The company manufactures dash assemblies and wiring harnesses for the pleasure marine industry. The company plans to add 10 new jobs.

C&K Enterprises, doing business as C&K Tool, 240 Growth Parkway, received a seven-year tax abatement. The company that manufactures machined components for the medical and aerospace fields, plans to add $800,000 in personal property. Also at the same address, ST Co., also doing business as C&K Tool, plans to add $200,000 in real estate improvements. The company plans to add five employees.
