312 new jobs coming to Michiana

312 new jobs and $23 million in additional payroll is coming to Michiana. It's all thanks to the expansion of Alcoa Howmet factory in LaPorte.

Governor Mike Pence is expected to travel to northern Indiana to make the announcement of the expansion involving hundreds of new jobs. Alcoa Howmet factory makes castings for aerospace and industrial gas turbine industries. Greater LaPorte Economic Development Corp. Executive Director Bert Cook tells The Times of Munster the announcement involves a previously reported expansion plan by the company.

In February, the LaPorte City Council approved a 10-year tax abatement for Alcoa Howmet, which had plans to invest $110 million into its 200,000-square-foot manufacturing plant.
