Rotomolding hopes to add 20 jobs

Things appear to be looking up for the barrier business. Rotomolding Incorporated makes plastic highway safety barriers at a plant on Kenmore St. in South Bend.

The company now has plans to expand the plant at a cost of $750,000.

The expansion is expected to create 20 new permanent full time jobs in the first year.

Rotomolding now employs 70 workers.

The company’s request for tax abatement will be considered by South Bend’s Redevelopment Commission Thursday.
