Navistar to expand engine components business

ABR Staff Writer Published 22 April 2011

Navistar International is planning to expand its engine components business, PurePOWER Technologies, which will add new jobs to the Indianapolis community in US.

The company will recall 150 workers by June 2011 and plans to hire 100 additional workers by 2014 at the Indianapolis foundry, one of the few remaining facilities in the US to make cylinder blocks and heads.

The company said the Indianapolis facility is capable to serve the needs of any manufacturer in the diesel engine arena.

Navistar Engine Group president Eric Tech said the Indianapolis foundry is a vital part of the company's efforts to maintain manufacturing capabilities and technical skills in the US.

"As a result of our investment to make the Indianapolis foundry a state-of-the-art facility, we will make the company more competitive to meet the global demands of the diesel engine industry," Tech said.
