Local manufacturer shows growth in Michigan City
Fiber Bond Corporation, in Michigan City since 1978 is investing in new equipment at its Michigan City, Indiana facility. Fiber Bond is a vertically integrated manufacturer of industrial textiles and commercial and industrial air filtration products. Fiber Bond will be adding new pieces of equipment to its production line to meet the needs of its growing customer base. “Due to the performance and quality of our air filtration product line, Fiber Bond has secured opportunities to produce panel and cube filters for two national accounts that will result in the need to expand our capacity and manpower used to produce these products,” said Dan Dobbins, Fiber Bond President. The company will be investing $289,000 for the equipment and installation which will add 10 new employees and help retain the current 130 employees.
The tax abatement, which was approved unanimously by the Michigan City Common Council at a meeting on August 21, 2018, will allow Fiber Bond to begin work on the equipment installation immediately.
