Italian Company Selects Huntington County for $9.5 Million Facility

The Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC) announced today that Italian mozzarella producer, Golfo di Napoli, of Italy, will develop a $9.5 million facility to produce cheese, creating 35 new jobs, at a 40 acre site at I-69, Exit 278 in Huntington County, Indiana.
Just one year ago, Indiana's Lt. Governor, Suzanne Crouch, and Jodi Golden, the director of the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs, visited the location to announce the State had extended the official PRIME Certification, recognizing the site as development ready.  Now, one year later, the first of two 40 acre tracts has been purchased by a manufacturing company. 
"The location has been on the long range planning documents in our County for nearly 20 years," said Mark Wickersham, executive director of the Huntington County Economic Development Corporation.  "The collaboration with the Town of Warren, the Huntington County Commissioners, our Board of Directors, and the State of Indiana, resulted in the PRIME Certification.  It brought next level attention to the site in ways we've never experienced before,"  Wickersham said.  "We are honored and ever so thankful Mr. Somma has invested in our County.  We look forward to assisting his team in making the project a success,"  Wickersham concluded.
