MICHIGAN CITY | Calumet Pallet Co. is moving from Hammond to the abandoned Brown Inc. building on South Ohio Street on the city's west side.

Mayor Ron Meer said as many as 65 jobs will be created. With plenty of ground at the site, Meer said, plans also call for possible expansion that could bring as many as 100 additional jobs.

The city's redevelopment commission recently approved tax abatement for the move.

Dean Uminski, interim director of the Economic Development Corp. in Michigan City, said the company plans to move during the final three months of the year and start operations Jan. 1.

He said the company is moving to grow.

"They're expanding here," said Uminski.
