A Nebraska e-commerce company has opened a distribution center in Plainfield. As part of the $4.75 million investment, VMInnovations says it will create 75 jobs by 2021.
The company says order fulfillment began at the facility in July. It is shipping home and garden, electronic, outdoor, sporting, baby and spa products from the center to customers throughout the United States. VMInnovations is currently hiring for fulfillment team members, with positions expected to pay salaries above the Hendricks County average.
Operations Manager Paul Prakapchuk says the state’s central location makes it "an ideal place for a fulfillment center." He says the Plainfield location "allows us to reach a significant amount of our customers in just one or two days, which is critical for operating an effective business."
VMInnovations currently employs more than 160 associates in locations in Nebraska, Pennsylvania and Nevada.
The Indiana Economic Development Corp. offered the company up to $400,000 in conditional tax credits based on the job creation plans. The town of Plainfield has approved additional incentives.
