JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (Inside INdiana Business) – The HVAC Filtration Division of Ohio-based Parker Hannifin Corp. is making a multi-year investment in its Jeffersonville location in the River Ridge Commerce Center. The company says the project will increase manufacturing capacity and add jobs. However, the company would not say precisely how many jobs would be added as a result of the investment.

The company did not disclose financial terms of the deal.

The project will allow the company to increase manufacturing capacity, and associated job growth, to produce HEPA filter products as well as filters used in medical and lab settings. The company did not disclose if any job would be added as a result of the investment.

Formerly known as CLARCOR Air Filtration Products Inc., the Jeffersonville facility was taken over by Parker Hannifin Corp. as part of the company’s acquisition of CLARCOR Inc. in 2017.

The company says the HVAC Filtration Division provides filters for the healthcare sector and daily protection as well as livestock virus protection in the agriculture and farming sectors.

“We are pleased to see the companies in the River Ridge Commerce Center continuing to expand,” said Jerry Acy, executive director of the River Ridge Commerce Center. “Our central location and world-class amenities have made River Ridge a preferred location to not only attract new business but allow healthy businesses to grow as well.”

HVAC Filtration was offered conditional tax credits from the Indiana Economic Development Corp. based on the company’s job creation plans. The company will be eligible to claim incentives once Hoosiers are hired.
