ALBION, Ind. -- A manufacturer plans to expand its operations in northeastern Indiana, possibly adding up to 120 workers over the next few years.

Busche Enterprise Division Inc. says it will spend about $17 million to buy, expand and equip a 36,000-square-foot factory near its headquarters in the Noble county town of Albion.

The company now has about 550 workers making castings and forgings that are used by companies that include John Deere and General Motors.

Busche plans to start expansion work on the new plant this fall and start production there next year.

Gov. Mitch Daniels joined company and local officials at an announcement of the expansion Thursday.
