Columbus, IN – Japan-based Tsune America, a manufacturer and distributer of high production circular sawing systems and blades, is growing again in Bartholomew County, Indiana. The company plans to invest $3 million in a new 18,000 SF facility on an available lot adjacent to its current operations near Edinburgh, north of Columbus, Indiana. The company also plans to install $1 million in new manufacturing equipment and add four new jobs by summer 2023 while retaining its current workforce of 31 persons.
“We are honored to be the U.S. home of Tsune America’s state-of-the-art fabrication, sales, and distribution center,” said Jason Hester, president of Greater Columbus Indiana EDC. “The company’s local origins trace back to the Columbus business incubator in the 1990s, and in the 2000s, Tsune brought its leading technology from Japan to the company. We are very pleased to support Tsune America’s continued growth here, as we know they have many options in the world about where to make investments like these.”
In support of the company’s expansion plans, the Bartholomew County Council approved property tax abatements that will allow a phase-in of net new property taxes over ten years on the building improvements and over five years on the net new property taxes on qualifying equipment.
