Monroe considers over $1M in incentives for auto parts supplier

Monroe is considering several incentives for an auto parts supplier that wants to expand.

UGN Inc., which opened a plant in Monroe about three years ago, is deciding whether it will bring 100 more manufacturing employees and around $6 million in payroll to the city or to Valparaiso, Ind., as previously reported by this news outlet.
