AccuTemp Products Inc. plans to create up to 14 new jobs in the next three years as it invests $765,660 to equip two Fort Wayne facilities, state officials announced today. The locations are at 8415 N. Clinton Park Drive and 5021 Investment Drive.
The Fort Wayne company, which now employs 50 full time, has already starting hiring sales associates. AccuTemp develops commercial food service equipment, including steamers, griddles and skillets. Customers include restaurants, schools, hospitals, hotels, prisons and the military.
New equipment – including special tooling, testing machines and computers – will allow the company to upgrade its production line.
The Indiana Economic Development Corp. offered AccuTemp up to $150,000 in training grants, based on the manufacturer’s hiring plans. The city of Fort Wayne approved additional incentives.
