Metaldyne Performance Group (MPG) announced plans to expand its operations in North Vernon, Ind. The $30.6 million investment will created up to 126 new jobs by 2019. The new 32,400-square-foot facility will be adjacent to MPG’s current 130,000-square-foot facility. Connected by a breezeway, the two buildings will provide expanded space for the company to increase production of its powder-forged connecting rods, which major automobile manufacturers use to improve fuel-efficiency in their gasoline and diesel engines. Construction is scheduled to begin later this month, and operations are slated to begin in 2018.
