Colorado-based Abound Solar says it remains on track to hire at least 850 people by 2014. Marketing Communications Manager Becky Ellzey tells Inside INdiana Business crews continue to work on turning an empty Tipton County building into a usable facility. Ellzey says the company plans to begin hiring workers in the second half of 2012.
Ellzey says the building currently has no utility services. She says work to make the building usable will likely continue through the first half of 2012.
Abound Solar originally announced plans to bring jobs to the area in 2010. At that time, the Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered the company more than $12 million in performance-based tax credits and training grants.
The Tipton County factory has been empty since Chrysler Group LLC and Getrac Transmission Manufacturing LLC bailed on plans to move in more than three years ago.
