AURORA, Ind. - Rest easy, new jobs are headed to Dearborn County.

Bed Techs, Inc. , a remanufacturer of hospital beds, announced Tuesday they plan to expand operations at its Aurora, Indiana, facility. They expect to create up to 55 new jobs by 2013.

The company, which reconditions Hill-Rom hospital beds and bed parts, will invest about $7.2 million to consolidate its Aurora and nearby Milan operations.
