Two companies begin moving equipment, jobs into Markland Business Park


Trenwa, Inc., has begun moving into its new facility at the Markland Business Park.

The Fort Thomas, Kentucky-based company announced last August that it would invest $2.5 million in Switzerland County to construct a 25,000 square-foot facility at the Park.

The project is expected to add up to 24 jobs to Switzerland County by the time it reaches full operation in 2012.

Trenwa’s 10-foot-long concrete trenches are used for the distribution of electrical control cables, power cables and mechanical piping. The company’s global customers are primarily related to the utility industry and include waste water treatment plants, telecommunication sites, wind farms, solar and nuclear power plants and universities.


Process Systems and Services, who announced its plans to locate at the park in 2009, is also in process of moving into its new facility. Process Systems and Services plans to move its remaining fabrication equipment in to the new facility over the next two months.

The company is currently hiring plastic technicians.


Switzerland County purchased the property for the 100-acre Markland Business Park in 2007. Since that time the project has gone through extensive design and permitting with state and federal agencies.

The extension of utilities to the site began in 2008 and has continued through 2010. The site has been certified as ‘Shovel Ready’ by the State of Indiana.

Switzerland County has been awarded a grant from the U.S. Economic Development Administration to construct the needed infrastructure for the remainder of the property, including a new entrance drive and storm drainage system.

The County is currently awaiting final approval to bid the project and construction is expected to begin this spring.
