GOSHEN — Lippert Components Inc. has canceled plans to build a $20 million facility on newly annexed land southeast of the city, Goshen City Council heard Tuesday.

Councilman Adam Scharf said he was surprised when he noticed the land was for sale at 16629 C.R. 36, which the city had annexed last year after hearing about Lippert’s plan for the property. The company intended to build a plant worth at least $20 million where 550 employees would be moved from other locations.

Wonderful transparency from Goshen's mayor. Big Jer was all up in it when they were making this proposal, yet took a month to let anyone know they backed out. Looks like the RV industry bit off more than it could chew.
