MUNSTER, Ind. (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Tec Air, a designer and manufacturer of plastic air movement parts and systems, is moving its headquarters from southwest suburban Willow Springs to Munster, Ind.

The company, which will complete the move by spring 2014, is expected to bring more than 250 jobs to its new state by 2016, according to a statement from the Indiana Economic Development Corporation.

"Companies in the Midwest and around the world recognize that Indiana is in the middle of everywhere," Indiana Gov. Mike Pence said in the statement. "From our robust infrastructure, low-tax environment, talented workforce and ideal location as the Crossroads of America, opportunity for growth lies in Indiana."

Tec Air employs about 150 people at its current facility, and the company expects to begin interviewing, hiring and training new employees in the first two quarters of 2014, the statement said.

"Tec Air is experiencing significant growth, and we want to position ourselves to capitalize on that path of success," Tec Air President Bob McMurtry said in a statement.

Indiana offered the 48-year-old company up to $2.26 million in conditional tax credits and $190,000 in training grants as part of their move.
