(PORTAGE, IN) - A decision by a solar company to move its North American headquarters from Michigan to Portage amounts to the biggest jobs announcement so far this year in northwest Indiana.

Fronius USA says it plans to create up to 512 jobs in portage by 2016.

General Manager for the Company's U.S. Operations, Niedrift Wolfgang, says they produce solar inverters.

The deal marks the 1,000th new business establishment or expansion completed by the Indiana Economic Development Corporation since it launched in 2005.
