JEFFERSONVILLE -

MXD Process, formerly Mixer Direct, is a manufacturer of industrial mixers, stainless steel tanks and batch control systems that automate mixing operations in a client’s laboratory or work site. 

Established in 2010 in Jeffersonville, the company has operated in a Louisville, Ky., facility for the past seven years and is expanding to meet demands of the growing company.

The new facility would be located at 4650 New Middle Road.

The IEDC offered MXD Process up to $320,000 in conditional tax credits based on the company’s job creation plans. These tax credits are performance-based, meaning until Hoosiers are hired, the company is not eligible to claim incentives.
