As part of its expansion in Hamilton County, Flexware Innovation plans to spend nearly $8 million to renovate and equip its current facility at 9128 Technology Lane.
The software provider has announced its commitment to create up to 68 new jobs by 2021. It is also considering constructing a new office building at an undisclosed date.
Renovation of the existing 10,000-sq.ft. office space is slated to begin in January 2018. It will include an open floor plan, focus rooms, Internet of Things (IoT) lab space, meeting rooms and high-tech presentation and video conference capabilities. These improvements will support the firm’s increased demand for highly-integrated manufacture and IoT solutions for its clients.
“Indiana has done such a wonderful job of making our state a place that manufacturing companies can flourish,” said Flexware Innovation president and chief executive Scott Whitlock.
“Couple that with Fishers’ investments in technology firms like Flexware, and we are in a perfect location to continue to attract talent and live out our passion for helping manufacturing companies,” Whitlock said.
The Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC) has offered the firm up to $1 million in conditional tax credits and up to $112,500 in training grants based on the company’s job creation plans. These incentives could not be claimed until Hoosiers are hired.
“As we embark on our third century, we will continue to equip businesses with a pro-growth business environment and a skilled pipeline. We look forward to witnessing Flexware Innovation’s growth as they develop technology-based solutions right here in Indiana for companies across the U.S.,” said IEDC president Elaine Bedel.
