Westfield Mayor Andy Cook and officials from specialty contracting firm Browning Chapman, LLC have announced the Indianapolis-based company will relocate its headquarters and warehousing facility to Westfield. The $4 million project is slated to create 110 new jobs.  

The company is relocating its current headquarters from Crosspoint Business Park in Indianapolis. 

The Westfield City Council has granted an eight-year real property tax abatement for the new Browning Chapman headquarters. The abatement will be phased-in at 10 percent per year. 

The 67,000 square foot building will be located in Westfield’s Northpoint Business Park adjacent to the Bastian Solutions advanced manufacturing facility.  

“The BC team is extremely excited to be joining the Westfield business community,” said Allan Browning, president of Browning Chapman, LLC in a news release.  “When Gordon Chapman and I began searching for our new headquarters location, we were immediately attracted to the Westfield area. Recent upgrades to the US 31 corridor allow for convenient access to Indianapolis and surrounding communities, while amenities such as the Monon Trial and Grand Park offer unique recreational opportunities. We think Westfield is the perfect location for our business and our employees.”  
Construction is scheduled to begin this summer, with an expected completion date in spring of 2020.
