FIRST REPORT: Auto parts supplier to expand Monroe facility, creating more than 100 jobs

The Warren County site at 201 Exploration Drive was selected over another in Valparaiso, Ind., following an announcement in February that UGN planned to expand at one of its two Midwest locations.

The expansion will require 111 new team members and add nearly $6 million in salaries.

The UGN Monroe facility opened in 2015 and brought more than 280 new jobs to the community to supply Honda Motor Co. with acoustic insulation, carpet, and underfloor technologies.
