Trailer manufacturer Wabash National Corp. has announced plans for a $2 million expansion that will bring more than 100 new jobs to one central Indiana city over the next five years.

Wabash National announced Friday that its new manufacturing complex in Frankfort about 25 miles southeast of Lafayette will expand its Wabash Composites business.

Wabash National will begin hiring in October and initial operations are expected to begin in December in Frankfort. The company is headquartered in nearby Lafayette.
