Job fair set at Berne plant

A local manufacturer has planned a hiring fair from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday at its new factory at 725 Parr Road, Berne.

As The Journal Gazette first reported in February, Poseidon Barge Co. is investing $6 million to buy, renovate and equip the 72,180-square-foot building where workers will build portable sectional barges. The Fort Wayne company expects to create up to 26 jobs by next year.

The expansion allows the manufacturer to reduce outsourcing and launch new products.

Officials are trying to fill 15 welding positions this week. Pay will range from $14 to $22 an hour, depending on experience. Workers will also receive benefits, including medical insurance and paid vacation days.
