Heartland Table Pad Co. Opening Operations in Wolcottville
 
Wolcottville, IN (June 6, 2016) The Town of Wolcottville, along with the LaGrange County Economic Development Corporation (LCEDC), are proud to announce the launch of a new manufacturing startup. Don Unger and Gary Heal, two veterans of the table pad manufacturing industry, have officially begun operating Heartland Table Pad Co. in the previously vacant IGA Building located at 401 N. Main Street in Wolcottville. At its conception, the company will operate with a few employees but plans to grow that number steadily in coming years.
 
“We saw an opportunity for a quality-oriented, customer friendly table pad business, and we were committed to keeping it in LaGrange County,” said Heal, a longtime resident of LaGrange. “The EDC and several other organizations have been extremely supportive and played a critical role in assisting us as we navigate the startup-phase. We look forward to being an involved member of the Wolcottville Community.” 
 
The LCEDC helped to facilitate the procurement of the 8,500 square feet in the former IGA Building. The building has seen significant renovations since Heartland Table Pad Co. began occupancy. After several years of deterioration, officials are excited to have it serving as a thriving site for commerce once again.
 
“The launch of this new manufacturing company is a victory for our community on several fronts. First, Gary and Don have started a company to, in part, fill the void in the market created by the closure of Ohio Table Pad last winter, including hiring of several former colleagues. Second, residents of Wolcottville can again see a thriving operation at this prominent site on Main Street. Heartland Table Pad’s investment signals a firm commitment to the people of Wolcottville and LaGrange County as a whole.” said Ryne Krock, President and CEO of the LCEDC.
