Two companies have announced plans to locate operations in the AllPoints at Anson development in Whitestown. The Boone County Economic Development Corp. says the moves could result in more than 70 new jobs.
Switzerland-based REGO FIX is planning to build an 18,000 square-foot facility which will become the company’s U.S. headquarters. The company, which manufactures parts for the aerospace, medical and power generation industries, will invest approximately $3.5 million and expects to hire 22 workers.
Carmel-based Telamon is expecting to occupy 111,000 square-feet of a new building currently under construction at AllPoints for its telecom division. Telamon plans to add up to 50 jobs with the move. The building is scheduled to be completed in September.
The Boone County EDC says the moves are pending incentive negotiations.
"We are excited to grow our business and expand into the Whitestown area," said Stephanie Fuhrmann, chief operating officer for Telamon. "We decided to add space here versus other parts of the Indy Metro area due to its convenient access to the highway and our headquarters in Carmel along with Duke/Browning’s willingness to ensure the space fits our exact requirements. As our business continues to grow, Whitestown and Anson seem to provide the most flexibility with regards to future expansion. We are thrilled to be adding an additional site here and look forward to contributing to the growth of this area."
Fuhrmann says the company needed additional assembly and warehouse capabilities due to its continued growth. While the new building is under construction, Telamon will temporarily use space in the Park 100 development on the northwest side of Indianapolis.
Whitestown Town Manager Dax Norton says the town’s investments in infrastructure and quality of life improvements have led to more companies coming to Whitesdown. Boone County EDC Executive Director Molly Whitehead adds both companies allow for the opportunity to highlight the county’s diverse business climate and global appeal.
