Manufacturer moving companies to South Whitley

February 26th, 2019

Fort Wayne-based Bolt Custom Trucks and Manufacturing has announced it's moving affiliated companies to South Whitley. Field service truck equipment manufacturer Service Star Trucks and TEK Coat and Spray, LLC, will locate in the former Dwyer Instruments building on West 1st Street.

The company plans to relocate employees to the new facility, but future plans include employing up to 35 workers at the South Whitley building. 

“We were pleased to find a place strategically located between our two facilities in Akron and Fort Wayne,” said Andy Martin, general manager of the new facility. “We look forward to working closely with the Town and the local school system as we prepare to grow our business in South Whitley.  It’s been exciting to interact with the team at the Whitley County Economic Development Corporation (EDC). The EDC is very motivated to grow the economy in Whitley County.”

A ten-year tax abatement on new equipment and real estate improvements has been approved by the South Whitley Town Council.
