More than 150 jobs could be coming to the state as a result of four expansions in Marion, Hamilton and Tippecanoe counties. The announcements involve Indianapolis-based ACE Technologies LLC and Central Marketing Transport Services in Indianapolis, DelMar Software Development at the Purdue Research Park in West Lafayette and Carmel-based PolicyStat LLC. Combined, the companies plan to invest more than $3.5 million into projects ranging from technology upgrades to additional space. The businesses are involved in the technology and logistics sectors.

The highest job total planned for the companies is DelMar Software Development. The web and mobile software developer expects to create up to 50 jobs by 2019 as part of its $1.7 million investment. The company is slated to move into the $12 million, 60,000-square-foot new space at the Herman and Heddy Kurz Purdue Technology Center, which was announced last month. The expansion is set to be complete in early 2017. The company says it has already begun hiring.

PolicyStat plans to nearly double its work force by adding 49 workers over the next nine years. The company recently moved into a new headquarters, tripling the size of its old space, in the Hamilton County city and is investing more than $700,000 into the office and equipment. PolicyStat makes software that involves policy and procedure management solutions.

A nearly $640,000 investment by Central Marketing Transport Services could create more than three dozen jobs in four years. The transportation and logistics provider was founded just two years ago and is headquartered in Edinburgh. The company has a presence in 48 states and is now hiring.

Engineering firm ACE Technologies is pumping close to $490,000 into improvements at its Indianapolis headquarters. The company is looking to upgrade technology and software equipment, hardware and computer boards, while adding 25 workers by 2019. ACE Technologies currently employs 29 in the city and is looking to beef up its West Coast footprint.
