FISHERS -

An automotive supplier has announced plans to invest $7 million into a new technology center in Fishers. thyssenkrupp Presta North America LLC says the location will result in up to 64 new jobs over the next two years. Current engineering operations in Indianapolis, which include 86 employees, are expected to relocate to the Hamilton County facility by the spring.

In an interview with Inside INdiana Business, Mayor Scott Fadness discussed the factors that helped Fishers attract the company. "I think, obviously, attracting talent, recruiting talent, as they try to bring in these highly-educated jobs, the quality-of-life in Fishers was important. I think the real estate fit their needs and we're going to move forward with a tax abatement, incentive package for them," he said.
