MacAllister Machinery Company Invests $44.5 Million In New Indianapolis Corporate Headquarters

09/24/2014
MacAllister Machinery Co., Inc., the authorized Caterpillar equipment dealer for central Indiana, plans to construct a new $44.5 million corporate headquarters facility in Indianapolis, creating up to 70 new jobs by 2018.

The homegrown-Hoosier company will construct and equip a new 300,000 square-foot office complex on 133 acres at 6300 Southeastern Ave. in Indianapolis, more than tripling its headquarters’ size from its current Indianapolis offices. The facility, which will house sales, rental, parts, equipment service and administrative operations, is expected to be operational by December 2016 and will allow the company to bring more of its operations under one roof, along with providing display areas for the company’s full line of products and equipment.

“Four generations of MacAllisters have been committed to the city of Indianapolis and Indiana. We are Hoosiers through and through,” said Chris MacAllister, President/COO of MacAllister Machinery. “This new headquarters on Southeastern Avenue will allow us to consolidate five separate locations into one and provide the elbow room to operate more efficiently. Our customers, employees and the community will be better served, plus we will have room to continue growing. We are especially appreciative of Mayor Greg Ballard, Governor Mike Pence and their staffs for assistance in making this project a reality.”

Founded in 1945, MacAllister Machinery sells a complete line of Caterpillar construction, mining and power generation equipment, in addition to offering equipment from other manufacturers, including Kubota, AGCO, JLG and Blue Bird. MacAllister Machinery, which currently has approximately 500 employees in the Indianapolis area and nearly 1,000 statewide at its 20 Indiana locations, plans to begin hiring for diesel mechanic, truck driving, sales, administrative and clerical positions.

The Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered MacAllister Machinery Co., Inc. up to $1,000,000 in conditional tax credits based on the company's 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 will consider additional incentives at the request of Develop Indy, a business unit of the Indy Chamber.

“Hoosier heritage runs deeply through companies like MacAllister Machinery,” said Governor Mike Pence. “Hoosiers are builders, with a tradition of entrepreneurship and a goal of excellence. MacAllister Machinery embodies this spirit and recognizes the limitless potential for growth here in Indiana, a state that works.”
