C&A Tool announces investment in future growth

Article provided

Locally based C&A Tool Engineering announced this morning that the company is expanding production capabilities at its Churubusco operations at both its main facility and the former MAHLE Clevite facility, which the company acquired in spring 2010.
C&A Tool will add equipment to support new business for the jet engine, power generation, and industrial markets.  New equipment will feature large turning and milling capabilities; examples include a CNC lathe (41” diameter x 128” length), Vertical Turning and Milling (63” diameter x 43” height), and Boring Mill (70” x 118” x 70” travel).
In addition, the company is expanding its high volume precision fuel system capabilities to support expanding diesel engine demand.  This technology will complement existing operations, helping to reinforce C&A as an industry leader in the metalworking trade.  The company also plans to add 18 new positions to its current 511 employee Churubusco-area workforce.
Established in 1969 as a premier tool and die maker, C&A Tool has become a national and international supplier of metalworking specialties and now has approximately 511 full time employees and 750,000 SF of manufacturing space at facilities in the Churubusco area and in Auburn (IN).  During spring/summer 2011, the company plans to exhibit at the OrthoTec, MD&M East, and OMTEC medical & surgical trade shows, along with the EASTEC 2011, the East Coast’s largest annual manufacturing event.
“On behalf of the Town Council, we are pleased to again support C&A Tool’s continued growth and success in our community,” said Town Council President Frank Kessler. “We cannot overstate our appreciation for the commitment the company’s leadership has demonstrated to our community.”
The Churubusco Town Council this evening approved a request for phase-in of personal property taxes on approximately $8,000,000 in new machinery and equipment purchases.  
The Whitley County EDC continues to work with C&A Tool and regional economic development partners such as the Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) and the Talent Initiative to support the company’s business development goals.
