YORKTOWN, Ind. (Inside INdiana Business) — A steel structural building manufacturer in North Carolina is expanding operations into the Midwest. Northedge Steel LLC says it is investing $6 million to acquire the former All-Steel Carports property in Yorktown with plans to add up to 40 full-time jobs.

The company expects to begin operations in August.
