SIRVA, Inc., a global moving and relocating company that includes Allied Van Lines and northAmerican Van Lines, will invest $16 million to centralize its national headquarters in Fort Wayne, Indiana, according to the Indiana governor's office. The company will create 240 new jobs over the next three years as part of the move, which will involve renovating and expanding its existing 288,000-square-foot regional business support center in Fort Wayne; SIRVA is currently headquartered in Illinois. "SIRVA continues to pursue initiatives that foster growth, create efficiencies, and drive maximum value for our customers, agents, and company," says Wes Lucas, SIRVA's president and CEO. "This decision further demonstrates our commitment to our moving services business." The company has been offered up to $2.4 million in performance-based tax incentives from the state; local governments will consider property tax abatement and will provide tax increment financing and training funds.
