Auto parts maker moving some operations to LaGrange County

Auto parts maker Exo-s is moving production from two of its Michigan factories to a new facility in LaGrange County, Indiana.

The company, based out of Quebec, Canada, says it the new Howe factory cost $7 million dollars.  Up to 250 new jobs could be coming to the area by 2016 thanks to the new operation.

The production is being shifted from factories in Three Rivers and Centreville.  About 200 people work in those factories.

"The move will allow Exo-s to accommodate planned expansion of operations to support increased customer demand for our high quality products, while holding the line on cost," said Todd Fowler, plant manager at Exo-s' Three Rivers location. "Representatives of the local and state government, and the local business community partnered with Exo-s to present an offer that is perfectly aligned to our company's future plans."

Exo-s makes molded plastic parts such as engine covers and fluid reservoirs.  The Indiana Economic Development Corp. is giving the company up to $2.75 million in tax credits.

Interested applicants can contact the company's human resources department by mail at P.O. Box 328, Three Rivers, MI, 49093 or by email at
