Zionsville-based DK Pierce & Associates will break ground Tuesday afternoon on its new headquarters. The life sciences consulting firm is investing nearly $4 million on the facility and plans to add about two dozen jobs by 2019.
DK Pierce & Associates expects to move into the new 18,000 square-foot facility in the city’s Creekside Corporate Park in the spring of 2017. The firm has already added two employees this year.
"Indiana’s life sciences industry is thriving with nearly 1,700 companies leading innovative research and developing life-saving products and technologies," said Victor Smith, Indiana Secretary of Commerce. "DK Pierce serves a crucial role, bringing these advancements into the market and ensuring that patients across the US have access to the treatments they need. On behalf of the state of Indiana, we are proud that DK Pierce is choosing to grow its operations here and we look forward to supporting its continued success here in the Hoosier state."
The firm was named an Indiana Company to Watch in 2015. Smith will take part in the ground breaking ceremony, which is scheduled for 4:00 p.m.
