Construction has begun in Fishers on the North American headquarters for STANLEY Security Systems. Officials broke ground Monday morning on the $16 million, 80,000 square-foot facility, which is expected to be complete in early 2017.
The move is expected to bring more than 300 jobs to the Fishers Point Business Park. Jim Cannon, president of STANLEY Security North America called the ground breaking an exciting day for the company.
"With the latest technologies integrated into the development of our new headquarters, the building will be the physical embodiment of STANLEY Security’s culture of innovation," said Cannon. "We are looking forward to providing revolutionary technology and unmatched customer service to commercial, institutional and industrial businesses with our employees together in one location."
Fishers Mayor Scott Fadness attended the ground breaking and called STANLEY a "continuous innovator." He said the project "exemplifies the vision of the I-69 corporate corridor, and sets a precedent for future development in the area."
The project was announced in February, along with the announcement that Braden Business Systems would relocate its headquarters from Indianapolis to the Nickel Plate District in Fishers. The tech company plans to add 90 jobs by 2020.
