South Whitley instrument maker to create up to 30 jobs

A musical instrument manufacturer is creating up to 30 new jobs by 2017 as it invests $2.3 million to renovate and equip a South Whitley factory, Indiana officials announced today.

Fox Products makes double-reed woodwind instruments, including bassoons, oboes and English horns.

The company, which now employs about 120, will begin hiring for the new positions in October. The 29,000-square-foot plant is scheduled to receive the last of the new equipment by the end of the year.

The Indiana Economic Development Corp. has offered Fox Products up to $140,000 in conditional tax credits and up to $40,000 in training grants, contingent on the company fulfilling its hiring goals.
