PendaForm to grow, double staffing

PendaForm Corp. of Bluffton announced an up to $4 million expansion that will result in 50 new jobs at the plastic injection molding company.

President and CEO Jack Slinger said Wells County was an attractive choice to grow because of the positive business climate, the ability to expand its building and the hard-working labor force. The company employs 50 workers.

The new jobs will pay between $12.50 and $18.50 an hour and will be filled this year.

“We are obviously pleased when a Bluffton business grows,” Mayor Ted Ellis said in a statement, “and we were happy to work closely with PendaForm to assure these jobs stay in Bluffton, and more jobs are made available for our Wells County community.”
