The former building for Bosch, Honeywell and Bendix in South Bend is in line to become the new home of Curtis Products.
The massive building was vacated about a month ago, and it is proposed that the city-owned buildings be leased to Curtis Products for 12 years, with no rent for the first two.
Curtis does tube bending and fabrication for automotive, agricultural and other clients. In addition to its new South Bend acquisition Curtis now has 324 workers spread out over four different plants in Monroe Park.
The company has pledged to invest 675,000 dollars in new equipment, and create nine new jobs.
Curtis Products’ new lease will go before the City Redevelopment Commission at an upcoming meeting this Thursday.
