Several businesses in Seneca County have recently expanded or are in the process of setting up an expansion project.
Toledo Molding & Die has seen some recent expansion, and expects to add up to 65 new jobs over the next three years to support a new expansion project.
Jay Gilliland, Tiffin plant manager of Toledo Molding & Die, said the company's recent expansion involves adding new presses and additional equipment to the plant to support a new customer program with Chrysler.

Laminate Technologies has added a 30,000-square-foot building, next to its main operation building, Chief Operating Officer Randy Joseph said.
Arnold Machine Inc. has also expanded recently by adding a dozen jobs and constructing a 15,000-square-foot addition to its existing building.
The building got too small due to increased production, so the company added 13,500 square feet for equipment assembly and 1,500 for engineering, president of Arnold Machine Inc., Zach Arnold, said.
"The addition is nearing completion and we are eager to get moved in," Arnold said in a press release. "This is an exciting time for AMI and our customers."
Tiffin-based Taiho Corp. of America announced plans last December to create 35 jobs the company is to add 40,000 square feet to its existing building. The project is expected to be completed by July.
National Machinery has added 110 new employees over the past two years, human resources manager Anne Martin said.
National plans to add about 55 more employees in 2013, though some will be offset by retirements.
The company has also made changes to its tool room and added a "significant" amount of new equipment, Martin said.
American Fine Sinter also has a 30,000-square-foot addition and is investing $14 million. The facility supplies engine component parts to Toyota.
