The headquarters of Ardagh Group, Glass – North America will be relocating from Muncie to Fishers by the end of the year. The company says the majority of its more than 200 employees will move to the new office.
The company is the glass division of Luxembourg-based Ardagh Group. While the jobs heading to Fishers are mostly office-based, Ardagh also has manufacturing facilities in Dunkirk and Winchester, along with Ardagh IS Services in Marion. The company employs nearly 1,100 workers throughout Indiana.
"When Ardagh Group first approached us with interest in relocating their glass division headquarters and 200 employees to the City of Fishers, we knew immediately this company would be a great fit for our community and entrepreneurial culture," said Fishers Mayor Scott Fadness. "Ardagh Group is a global leader in glass and metal packaging, operating in more than 20 countries worldwide, with innovative leadership that has resulted in unprecedented growth in recent years. Its North American glass division is a leading producer of glass containers for the food and beverage industries in the U.S..”
The city of Fishers says the announcement is the first in a "series of expected jobs and investment announcements" this summer.
