Those were just a couple of the concerns during an economic development roundtable with the governor today at the Vera Bradley distribution center, 11222 Stonebridge Road.

Representatives from 14 Allen County companies took part in the discussion today, which began at 1:30 p.m. Fort Wayne Metals, Android Industries, General Motors Co. and BAE Systems were among the participants.

Vera Bradley is the site of a recent $22.6 million investment in improvements and equipment.
