LAFAYETTE, Ind. — More jobs are coming to Lafayette.

Subaru of Indiana said Wednesday it is adding 350 new jobs at its plant in Tippecanoe County thanks to a $158 million investment. The new money being pumped into the facility is on top of a similar investment from two years ago in which the company added 200 jobs.

“We’re proud to continue investing in Indiana,” said Scott Brand, Senior Vice President at SIA. “We also appreciate the tremendous support these plans have received. Our production levels have tripled over the past 10 years. These new projects are exciting growth opportunities to help us meet increasing customer demand.”

On top of the jobs, Subaru says they will build a new service parts facility and expand its plant to add a transmission assembly shop, which will be up and running by 2023.

The state is offering Subaru of Indiana up to $2.65 million in conditional tax credits. SIA said they will not be eligible for those tax credits until Hoosiers are hired to fill those jobs.

“For nearly 35 years, Subaru has been an important partner in supporting Indiana’s economy and creating great career opportunities in the community,” said Gov. Eric Holcomb. “With this latest commitment, I’m even more confident they’ll continue to play a key role in keeping Indiana on a path to success for generations to come.”

The plant is Subaru Corporation’s only plant in the United States. It is where they make the Impreza and Outback crossover vehicles.
