BUTLER, Ind. (AP) - A Georgia-based maker of roll-up doors plans to open a plant in northeastern Indiana that could employ up to 50 workers within a few years.

The Star of Auburn reports (https://bit.ly/1irxa1l ) Janus International signed a lease last week for a building in the DeKalb County city of Butler.

CEO David Curtis says the company had been looking for a Midwest site for about a year and also considered Michigan before settling on northeast Indiana.

Janus International makes roll-up doors and metal components, primarily for the self-storage industry and commercial markets.

Butler is home to steelmakers Steel Dynamics Inc. and New Process, which are Janus suppliers.

The Indiana Economic Development Corp. says Janus buys steel from Steel Dynamics’ Butler mill and wanted to a plant closer to the steel supplier.
