With business up, Sumitomo Electric Wiring Systems is looking to expand their operations.
The company is reopening and renovating an old plant that was currently being used for storage.
And with that second location, they'll also add more jobs to Allen County.
"Currently, we will be transferring existing jobs from the other building over here, but in the next couple years, we hope to add 10 to 12 new jobs in this facility," says Alan Bomar, the Deputy Division Manager for Sumitomo Electric Wiring Systems, Inc.
Sumitomo, which manufactures connectors for some of the wires used in cars, Says the three million dollar project was made possible because the automotive industry is booming.
"By us having two facilities with extra capacity in both buildings. we'll be able to grow with the future automotive industries as they grow," says Bomar.
They say their business is up 10 to 15 percent in the last four years.
"Business is improving, sales is increasing, we've always had a very good, stable workforce here in Allen County and this will provide more opportunity in this area for more of the folks in the area to work and hopefully, as we continue to grow, more employment here in Allen County," says Bomar.
Allen County's Director of Economic Development agrees that the expansion project is a good thing for the community.
"... A lot of construction jobs there, they're spending three million dollars, and the initial small number of employment., but the exciting thing is, there is potential for future growth...." says Richie Sanders, the Director of Scottsville Allen County Economic Development.
Another county showing strong economic growth is Edmonson.
Yahagi America Molding has announced that it also will expand its facility in Park City.
