Floyd County Company Continues Rapid Growth

Posted: Updated:
NEW ALBANY -

New Albany-based SmartBox LLC is planning to add 100 jobs by 2022. The digital marketing company focused on the dental industry says it will pump $1 million into doubling the size of its headquarters. It was one of five Hoosier companies included in the most recent Inc. 5000 Best Workplaces list.

Nearly 50 SmartBox employees are based in Floyd County and 30 work remotely. The 16-year-old company is family-owned and was also recognized this year and last year by Inc. as one of the nation's fastest-growing. Chief Executive Officer Colin Receveur says "expanding our facility allows us to continue attracting elite professionals while fulfilling our mission of helping dentists thrive. One of the biggest reasons for our success is the dedication of our team members. Each team member takes ownership of their role and works to build a more successful company."

SmartBox says the new positions, which include content writers, client success managers, digital project managers and digital storytelling experts, are expected to pay average wages more than 65 percent higher than the state average. The office expansion and renovation, which began in July, is expected to be complete in December.

The company has been offered more than $1.6 million in conditional tax and training incentives from the Indiana Economic Development Corp. You can connect to more about the plans by clicking here.

That's the conclusion I’ve drawn as I've...
