Indiana Gov. Mike Pence shakes hands with County Commissioner George Schrumpf.

COLUMBIA CITY — Governor Mike Pence joined executives from 80/20 Inc., a t-slotted aluminum components and framing provider, today (Wednesday) to announce the company’s plans to expand its headquarters here, creating up to 97 new jobs by 2016.

The homegrown-Hoosier company, which designs and manufactures modular extruded aluminum framing for a variety of industrial and home-hobby applications, will invest $11 million to build an additional 31,000 square feet onto its existing 250,000 square-foot facility on its 38-acre Columbia City campus.

Construction of the new addition, which will house a training auditorium and expanded office space, is expected to begin in April.
