UT Electronic Controls Division Hosts May 2010 Lime City Economic Development Committee Luncheon
Riverforks Industrial Park, Huntington, Indiana --
The Lime City Economic Development Committee met at UT Electronic Controls Division in Huntington for the May 2010 Committee Luncheon.
UT Electronic Controls Division is the largest manufacturing employer in Huntington County and is arguably the world leader in the design and manufacturing of control boards for the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning industry. UT's control boards are the key component to nearly 70% of the thermostats, controlling HVAC systems in nearly every application - residential, commercial, and other specialty environments, even including the Sistine Chapel.
UT's 144,000 square foot facility in Huntington's Riverforks Industrial Park is a premier tenant in the Park. The facility is host to 9 production lines, including one recently relocated from China. The plant processes over 1 billion components annually.
The Lime City Economic Development Committee is a committee of Huntington County Economic Development concentrating on economic development activities within the City of Huntington. The "Lime City Committee" grew out of the Huntington Chamber of Commerce, becoming the Lime City Economic Development Corporation at one time. Later, as a County-wide economic development effort was desired, the Lime City Economic Development Corporation "morphed" into the Huntington County Economic Development Corporation or HCUED. Once established, HCUED agreed to continue a "Lime City Committee" and maintain independent financial resources under HCUED's 501 (c) (3) designation.
John Easterday of Bippus State Bank serves as the President of the Lime City Committee and Jason Fields of El Shaddai, Inc., and Huntington City Council, is the Vice President.
