Western Power Sports, Inc. has announced it will locate a distribution center in Ashley, creating up to 40 new jobs by 2012.

Western Power Sports is the second company to announce plans to locate a distribution center in the small town of Ashley, Ind. this year. In January, Family Dollar Stores, Inc. said it would start construction on a $70 million, 815,000 square-foot distribution center in the Dekalb County town this spring, creating up to 350 new jobs starting in 2012.

A wholesale distributor of parts and accessories for motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles, snowmobiles, watercraft and bicycles, Western Power Sports will invest $3.8 million to lease and equip an existing facility in Ashley to serve as its distribution center for the Upper Midwest.

“Indiana continues to invest in its world-class logistics infrastructure and it’s paying off – two new companies in Ashley in as many months is a tremendous economic boost for Hoosiers in the Northeast corner of our state,” said Gov. Mitch Daniels.
