PEOSTA (KWWL) -- Bodine Electric Company reported that it's Peosta plant is now fully operational.

The company said that more than 100 new machining jobs were created with the expansion.

"Our plant in Iowa has been a successful operation from the start, over 15 years ago," said John Bodine, president of Bodine Electric Company.
