BLUFFTON, Ind. (WFFT) - A local plastics manufacturing announced employee raises because of the new tax plan.
20/20 Custom Molded Plastics in Bluffton announced Thursday it is giving all employees a 50-cent-per-hour raise.
The company makes custom plastic materials such as bins, creates and ladders.
The northwest Ohio based company made the announcement while giving congressman Jim Banks a tour of the facility Thursday.
Banks said this shows the new tax cuts are working as they were intended to.
"At first we heard from a number of big global companies like Starbucks, Apple and Walmart that were giving raises and are expanding. Now we're hearing from businesses that local to the third district," said Banks.
20/20 also plans to invest $13 million into expanding its Bluffton facility.
The company moved to Bluffton late last year, replacing Buckhorn when it closed.
