A specialty shoe manufacturer is relocating operations to Zionsville from a neighboring state. Healer Health LLC, which acquired Kentucky-based Hylan Shoe Co. in March, says it plans to add 25 Boone County jobs over the next four years.
The owner of Healer Health is familiar to the Indiana health care product manufacturing scene. Todd Katz founded Indianapolis-based Home Health Depot, which he sold in 2004. He also owned orthopedic manufacturer Bell-Horn, which was acquired by a private equity firm in 2011. Katz is chief executive officer of Healer Health and says "when searching for a place to grow Healer Health, I was looking for a business climate just like we have here in Indiana – home to low taxes, limited regulations and a loyal, dedicated workforce. Zionsville is a perfect location to build a new business."
The company is planning to open a distribution center in Zionsville’s Mayflower Business Park. It says hiring for marketing, warehousing and distribution positions could begin this month. Healer Health’s I-Runner diabetic shoe product line is distributed to pharmacies, hospitals, podiatrists and home health offices.
The company has been offered a total of up to $225,000 in conditional tax credits and training grants from the Indiana Economic Development Corp. The town of Zionsville is also supporting the move through its own incentives package.
