Tuesday, August 13, 2013

WINAMAC, Ind. – The Braun Corp. announced Aug. 13 that it will spend about $7.5 million to modify a production line at its Winamac, Ind., facility so workers can install rear-entry wheelchair lifts on minivans there. The move shifts production from Kalamazoo, Mich. The new line is expected to be operational by late next year. The Indiana Economic Development Corp. offered Braun up to $500,000 in tax credits and $100,000 in training grants. The move will create 70 jobs in Indiana.
