Sometimes bigger is better.

The Noble County Council Monday approved a 10-year tax abatement for a company planning to expand at its current facility and add three employees.

QSI Automotive Inc., 3585 S. S.R. 9-57, Churubusco, submitted a plan to increase its factory by 16,000 square feet.

“It’s the biggest addition we’ve ever done,” company President Phil Munk told the council. “We keep on growing.”

The abatement will phase in the company’s tax burden for 10 years on the cost of the $1 million expansion.

According to Munk, the expansion won’t just be more square footage, but cubic footage as well, as the company literally raises the roof to allow for the installation of crane equipment for moving heavy pieces of machinery.

QSI Automation builds automated equipment for the manufacturing industry.

The company currently employs 43 people.
