JWS Machine begins move to Terre Haute

Company moving from Brazil to International Airport

TERRE HAUTE — JWS Machine Inc. of Brazil has begun its move to a new location at Terre Haute International Airport-Hulman Field. A deal struck with the Terre Haute International Airport Authority Board of Directors earlier this year allowed for a 20-year lease of Building 2, the former Ivy Tech Community College facility. That building has been vacant for the past seven years.

The move, expected to take roughly six weeks to complete, will bring nearly 50 jobs to Terre Haute. Another 15 jobs are expected to be filled by the end of the year. Additionally, JWS has made an investment of nearly $4 million in Terre Haute, including property improvements and new equipment purchases.

“Our new facility will allow us to work smarter and more efficiently,” said Jeff Stark, president of the company. “It will also allow for an expansion in both our current markets and new ones to come.”

In addition to the physical move, the company’s structure will change. “Additionally, the new structure will allow us to market ourselves in a new way — to be more industry-specific,” said Darrel Zeck, director of business development and government affairs for the new parent company, STARK Industries.

STARK Industries will include several entities that include JWS Machine and STARK Unmanned Systems. Business will be focused within the aerospace, unmanned systems, medical and heavy industrial fields. The company will remain privately owned and operated.
