Elkhart County leaders have approved a tax break for a new technology research and innovation center.

The Elkhart County Council on Saturday, Aug. 8, gave final approval for a 10-year tax phase-in for a proposed $4 million research and innovation center for Furrion, the Elkhart Truth reports.

The resolution passed unanimously, with Council President John Leatherman abstaining because of a family connection to the project.

The new facility is expected to create at least 20 jobs with an average wage of about $22 per hour, said Chris Stager, interim president and vice president of retention and expansion for the Economic Development Corp. of Elkhart County.

The company already has a small presence in the area for distribution of its products to the county’s RV manufacturers, Stager said. Last month, Furrion announced a distribution deal with RV parts supplier Lippert Components.
