A company that makes steel storage tanks and trailers plans to open a Fort Wayne plant that could bring about 300 new jobs to the area by 2016.
Accelerated Tanks and Trailers said Monday it will occupy nearly 100,000 square feet of space in an existing Fort Wayne building that it will upgrade by 2015.
The News-Sentinel reports the company says it will make mobile steel storage tanks and trailers used for oil and gas, environmental cleanup, construction and industrial applications.
Accelerated Tanks says it has developed an environmentally-friendly, patent-pending design to insulate steel tanks.
The company is a division of C&J Services and Supplies, which has its headquarters in Carmel in north suburban Indianapolis.
