ANDERSON, Ind. —
In a formal announcement Tuesday, an industrial filtration products manufacturer said it expects to add over 100 jobs in Anderson.
Hy-Pro, which had previously operated out of a two-building complex in Fishers, said it expects to add 107 jobs in Anderson when it moves to a 17-acre plot just north of Nestle USA’s facility next year. The jobs average $21 per hour plus benefits.
According to a release from the city, the company will invest $10.5 million to build its facilities over the next three years.
Congressman Mike Pence said in a statement the move is “welcome news for this great city, and it confirms my belief that Anderson is an opportune place to do business.”
Hy-Pro is the latest in a string of nine jobs announcements made by Mayor Kevin Smith’s office this year. Smith said his office is in talks with other companies interested in setting up shop in Anderson.
