             (LaPorte County, IN): Commissioner Sheila Matias kicked off 2022’s first LaPorte County
WORKS! with a spotlight on Enprotech Industrial Technologies, a leading supplier of repairs,
rebuilding and new equipment for the steel manufacturing industry. The company which is a
manufacturer of metal stamping, forming and forging equipment and services was highlighted on
January 5th 2022. LaPorte County WORKS! is an initiative to maximize awareness, focus on business
retention and employment opportunities in this business report. The program, created by
Commissioner Sheila Matias and staffed by the Office of Community and Economic Development, is
a business report whereby Commissioner Matias highlights a unique La Porte County company during
the Commissioner Comments section at each Board of Commissioners meeting. These reports aim to
share information about our local economy, honor members of our diverse business community, and
make citizens aware of job opportunities in LaPorte County. Highlighted companies are listed on the
county web site at www.laportecounty.in.gov under LaPorte County WORKS! on the Home Page.

             “As a result of the many positive responses from both the community and from the companies
we have highlighted in 2021, we are proud to continue this project in 2022. La Porte County WORKS!
highlights and honors our LaPorte County employers, diverse services and products made right here in
our county as well as great job opportunities close to home that offer great benefits, wages, and
positive company cultures. There’s no time like the present to take advantage of these opportunities if
you are looking for a job or a new career pathway,” stated Commissioner Sheila Matias.
“LaPorte County WORKS! is working! Companies have come forward requesting to be
highlighted at the County Commission meeting, and we couldn’t be prouder of the early results. My
hope is to highlight their products, services, and history because each of the companies contribute to
making our great county the premiere place to work, live and raise our families. We want to ensure
that LaPorte County residents who are seeking a new career, a better job or an opportunity for success
can look no further than the many great employers right here in beautiful LaPorte County, Indiana,”

              “What makes the La Porte County Works! program both exciting and effective is the regularity
of the business report-outs as well as the assistance from the media to help us spread the word to
people looking for a better opportunity for their families. Our goal is also to make sure our young
people know they don’t have to leave our county to build a great career and earn a good income. Most
of the companies Commissioner Matias is highlighting are companies that may have a low profile and
while being a solid employer, they go about their business producing, manufacturing and creating
without a lot of fanfare. But local companies form the backbone of our economy and when they need
our support, we are there for them. Right now, many of them need employees and this program
addresses that need. That’s is what makes us so excited to dive into 2022 with this highlight on
Enprotech, a solid local company with enticing wages, benefits, and opportunities. Local companies
are invited to submit a request for a highlight at the link below,” concluded Tony Rodriguez, Director
of the LaPorte County Office of Community and Economic Development.
