A tradeshow products business is up and running in North Judson. Outstanding Tradeshow Exhibit Services (OTES) moved into the Thermo Products building west of town on State Road 10. The company produces exhibit booths for tradeshows, as well as banners for a variety of uses.

OTES President Nan Wellman told the North Judson Town Council last week that the company has done a lot of renovations to the building, with more work still to be done. She also said they’ve hired five local people so far. Many of those positions are carpentry jobs, but Wellman said she’ll also be looking for help in the graphics department, both with design and operating equipment.

OTES received a seven-year, $360,000 tax abatement on equipment and an additional 10-year, $665,000 phase in of taxes on real estate improvements from the Starke County Council last July.
