Delphi, Ind. — The Carroll County Economic Development Corporation announces that it has sold its first lot in the Hoosier Heartland Industrial Park to Carroll White REMC. The Hoosier Heartland Industrial Park is 60 acres of shovel ready ground just south of Delphi, near Indiana Packers Corp.
Carroll White REMC plans to build a new operations center in the park that will house 18 employees.
“Carroll White REMC is very excited about this new operations facility in Carroll County. The Hoosier Heartland Industrial Park is a wonderful growth opportunity for Carroll County and we are proud to not only be the first to purchase ground, but to also be the electric provider. Our crews travel to areas near Burlington, Galveston, Rossville, Delphi, Brookston and Lake Cicott. The HHIP location is central to our south service area and will allow us to respond more efficiently. We are also across the highway from one of our largest electric loads at Indiana Packers Corp.,” said Randy W. Price, CEO of Carroll White REMC.
The facility is expected to be completed by the fourth quarter of 2015.
The sale of lot four to the Carroll White REMC is a giant first step for the EDC, said its executive director Laura Walls, and certainly not the last.
“We are thrilled to have a strong community partner like the Carroll White REMC invest in the Hoosier Heartland Industrial Park. We have designed a park that meets the latest demands from business and industry and will accommodate aggressive timetables from companies. Because of this, we expect the remaining lots to develop in the next couple of years. We have already secured a letter of intent for another lot,” said Walls.
