A northern Indiana company that provides equipment and services to the telecommunications industry plans to expand its Warsaw operations and eventually add 140 new workers.
KGP Logistics announced Monday that it would open a second Warsaw location in January, adding 75 assembly jobs across two shifts. The Journal Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/1YWfORR ) employment is expected to grow to 140 employees by 2017 at the new location, which once housed a plastics factory.
KGP Logistics employees at the new site will be trained in splicing and testing fiber optic communication cables for the telecommunications industry, where demand is growing for increased bandwidth.
The company obtained several new contracts this year. KGB Logistics has been in Warsaw since its 2009 acquisition of Embarq Logistics and currently employs 140 workers at a distribution center.
