Vestil Manufacturing

Vestil Manufacturing, a fourth-generation manufacturer, announced plans to expand its operations in Indiana, creating up to 100 new jobs by 2021.

"Indiana has worked diligently to build one of the top business climates in the country, where one in five Hoosiers works in manufacturing," said Indiana Secretary of Commerce Jim Schellinger. "We are proud that Vestil Manufacturing, a fourth-generation manufacturer, continues to call Indiana home, creating Hoosier jobs and taking our state to the next level."


The company, which manufacturers ergonomic products, loading dock equipment, material handling equipment, drum handling equipment and packaging equipment, plans to invest nearly $15 million to expand its Plant 1, located at 2999 N. Wayne St. in Angola, by 8,100 square feet and construct a new 250,000-square-foot fulfillment center located at the corner of Pokagon Trail and Growth Parkway. The new fulfillment center will allow Vestil Manufacturing to service its customers more quickly and efficiently, housing enough inventory to manage quick-ship products for some of the company’s biggest customers.
"Vestil credits Indiana’s centralized location and Angola’s proximity to major roadways as a major factor in its decision to stay and grow in Indiana," said Barry Trine, president of Vestil Manufacturing. "The strong work ethic and diversified work skills of Hoosiers was another determining factor. We are excited to be expanding in Indiana, and are thankful for the continued support of the state and the Angola community."
