The company announced it would also expand its facility at 1380 S. Williams Drive and add a new production line, investing an additional $3.2 million.

“We are pleased to be expanding once again in Whitley County,” Impact CNC Founder and Owner Jerry Busche said in a news release. “The business climate is second to none in Whitley County, and it’s humbling to receive such great support from community and government officials.

The company will add an additional 25,000 square feet to the building, and manufacturing equipment such as mills, lathes and machining centers.
