Tilson Expands Greenwood, Indiana, Operations Center

07/01/2015
Tilson, a Professional Employer Organization that provides human resources and benefits solutions, plans to expand its operations in Greenwood, Indiana. The company will create up to 245 new jobs by 2020.

The company will invest $1.55 million to renovate and expand its current headquarters at 1530 American Way in Greenwood, while considering long-term sites to accommodate the company’s rapid growth. The investment will also be used to upgrade corporate infrastructure to support the expansion.

“Many Hoosier business owners today are looking for ways to recruit and retain top performers and are working hard to provide comprehensive HR and benefits for their employees,” said Brent Tilson, President/CEO of Tilson. “It is proven that companies that use PEOs like Tilson thrive – they grow faster, have lower employee turnover and are less likely to go out of business. Our investment is not only in Tilson but in small to midsized businesses across the state and nation, and we appreciate the state’s and community’s support as we grow.”

The company, which recently acquired Phoenix-based Amerisource HR, has experienced a 51 percent increase in employees under management over the last year. Tilson’s growth has been fueled by considerable interest from key industries, including non-profit organizations, small to midsized businesses and high growth companies.

The Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered Tilson up to $1,525,000 in conditional tax credits and up to $100,000 in training grants based on the company’s job creation plans. These incentives are performance-based, meaning until Hoosiers are hired, the company is not eligible to claim incentives. The city of Greenwood will consider additional incentives.

“Homegrown Hoosier companies are growing today with confidence,” said Governor Mike Pence. “By cutting costs and reducing regulations, Indiana has created an economic environment that allows businesses to expand without the red tape. Paired with low taxes and a skilled Hoosier workforce, companies like Tilson can be assured that Indiana is a state that works.”
