As even more severe weather strikes the Midwest, the thoughts of everyone at Whitley Manufacturing are with our fellow-Hoosiers and Midwesterners who have been so dramatically effected by last week’s severe and unseasonable storms.
A pair of Southern Indiana communities suffered heavy damage in addition to the losses already suffered by victims throughout the region. The National Weather Service states that the tornado that struck New Pekin measured a EF-3 on the Fujita scale, while the tornado which struck Henryville, IN measured EF-4 with winds of 175 MPH.
We currently have a number of our flexible clearspan modular building components available for rapid delivery. These flexible units feature clearspan construction, allowing for endless reconfiguration of the building and interior layout.

THE HARRISOn mixed-use project completes fort wayne’s harrison square development, the centerpiece of downtown revitalization plans.
The Harrison (pictured above) is the last phase of the Harrison Square development which includes Parkview Field (home of the Fort Wayne TinCaps) and is a vital component of the city’s downtown revitalization efforts.
