Sixteen firms plan expansion; 2,100 jobs announced

Christmas has arrived early for people of Indianapolis. 16 business firms have announced that they have plans of expansion. This means soon there will be many jobs opportunities available. The firm have pledged to create around 2,153 jobs in Indianapolis over next few years.

State officials announced on Thursday that a maker of heavy equipments in Plymouth has plans to create 475 jobs by 2017 and other 15 companies plan to do the same. They plan to do this in return for more than $19 million in tax credits and other incentives.

The biggest deal is of AMI Industries Inc. They plan to create 250 jobs next year and 250 more by 2017. They have invested $8.5 million to improve production equipment for farming and automotive components.

The state has offered AMI $1.5 million in conditional tax credits and $100,000 in training grants.

Gov. Mike Pence said that this day is possible because of Indiana’s strong economy, fiscal responsibility and pro-growth policies. These businesses will help power our economy into 2015, creating jobs and investing in the future.
