Lytx said it plans to move manufacturing for its DriveCam video event recorders from mainland China to Indiana.
An Asian company will still be part of the supply chain. Taiwan-based New Kinpo Group owns Cal-Comp USA, which will manufacture the products in Logansport, Ind.
The move will create 70 jobs in Indiana and will represent a $50 million investment. The business said it plans to start validating its manufacturing processes in October. Full production is scheduled for March.
Lytx products and services monitor truck and bus driver performance. The business began under the name DriveCam. GTCR LLC, a private equity firm from Chicago, bought Lytx in 2016 for $550 million.
Cal-Comp’s Logansport plant turns out products for aerospace, defense and medical devices.
