Direct Connect Logistix Opens Corporate Headquarters in Indianapolis, Indiana

01/05/2018
Direct Connect Logistix, a national transportation and logistics firm, opened its new corporate headquarters in Indianapolis, Indiana. The facility will allow the company to nearly double its team since beginning the project in 2016.

The Indianapolis-based company is investing more than $2 million to grow its headquarters, leasing and equipping a 14,000-square-foot office at the Cosmopolitan on the Canal at 314 W. Michigan Street.

The light-filled, ground-floor space is reflective of the company’s high-energy culture and allows DCL to nearly triple its office space. An open design features vivid red accents, a contemporary mural of the city as a focal point and nearly 170 workstations, which will allow DCL to increase its customer base with its technology-driven solutions to freight management.

“DCL quickly outgrew our current space as we have doubled in size in the past two years alone,” said Greg Humrichouser, co-Founder & President of DCL. “Remaining in downtown Indianapolis and expanding our presence was a logical step as we look to attract and hire an energetic and diverse workforce reflective of our company’s culture and inspired to serve our customers.

”The Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered DCL up to $630,000 in conditional tax credits and up to $40,000 in training grants based on the company’s 2016 job creation plans. These tax credits are performance-based, meaning until Hoosiers are hired, the company is not eligible to claim incentives. The city of Indianapolis supports the project at the request of Develop Indy, a business unit of the Indy Chamber.

When beginning its headquarters project in 2016, DCL committed to creating 90 new, high-wage jobs by the end of 2020, state officials said. The company has already added 26 jobs and is currently hiring for positions in operations, account management, IT and business development.

“Indiana is a global logistics leader, offering businesses like DCL a strong competitive advantage with our central location, skilled workforce and nationally ranked business climate,” said Indiana Secretary of Commerce Jim Schellinger said. “Under Governor Holcomb’s leadership, the state is committed to supporting companies like DCL by maintaining and enhancing Indiana’s infrastructure, ensuring our position as the Crossroads of America, and providing logistics firms the ideal hub to transport products across the country and around the world.

” “We’re starting 2018 out with a bang, celebrating a homegrown company building upon their already strong roots in our community,” said Mayor Hogsett. “Direct Connect Logistix’s expansion signals more than new high-wage jobs on the horizon, this is a testament to Indianapolis’ remarkable culture of innovation, and the continued success and growth we anticipate in 2018 and beyond.”
