Two divisions of ICIM Corporation, Indatus and Mocura, plan to establish headquarters on 118 East Main Street in Louisville, Kentucky, creating a total of 100 jobs.
Indatus and Mocura will establish a tier-2 data center with full network operations center in a renovated historic building at 118 E. Main Street in Louisville. The building is registered as a historic for its art deco design. It was also the original headquarters of Four Roses Bourbon, home to the Miller Paper Company, and, most recently, Bridges and Smith Paint Company. Renovation of the historic site, touted as the “Gateway to Whisky Row,” is estimated to be completed by late December 2013. The project also includes the refurbishing of 9,000 square feet on the first floor for lease to a retail or restaurant space, as well as renovating 9,000 square feet of basement space.
“This project is such a great example of what happens when motivated government agencies and institutions work together with common purpose,” said Dave Durik, CEO of Indatus. “We are just extremely excited and honored to be the recipient of the attention.”
“This is a great day for the Commonwealth, with 100 new jobs and the headquarters for two companies locating here in Louisville,” said Gov. Steve Beshear. “We welcome Indatus and Mocura as new corporate citizens in Kentucky, and we realize just how significant headquarters are for our economy, bringing not only top-level jobs, but proven leaders and innovators to our communities.” A list of incentives for which the firm might be eligible was not immediately available.
“It’s great when Louisville and a company both benefit by moving its operations to Louisville and creating new jobs,” said Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer. “It’s even better when they decide to completely renovate and modernize an older building, augmenting our sustainability practices. Indatus and Mocura both will be meeting business technology demands in Louisville and around the country, and we look forward to working with them.”
“The addition of Indatus and Mocura to the East Main Street corridor adds to the increasing density of technology firms in the NuLu, East Main, Nucleus area,” said Eileen Pickett, vice president of economic development for Greater Louisville Inc. “We are thrilled to see this growth and the evolution of the historically booming bourbon district becoming home to the latest innovations in technology.”
