Tax abatement will help White County company relocate to Tippecanoe County

A White County company is looking to relocate to Tippecanoe County.

Jessup Paper box is currently housed in several buildings in Brookston.

Owner Butch Huber says the plan is to get the entire operation under one roof.

Commissioners this morning approved a ten-year, $1.6-million tax abatement to help the company purchase land near the intersection of Veteran's Memorial Parkway and US 52.

Huber says there are no plans to add jobs initially, but he's optimistic that will happen as Jessup Paper Box continues to grow.

The company was established in 1959.

It manufactures two piece boxes, slip cases, game-boards, and puzzles.
