Biomedical test instrument maker Beckman Coulter will invest more than $18.2 million and create up to 95 jobs in Indianapolis. The expansion is the third for the company in this Indiana city over the past four years. It will use the funds to add new equipment to its facility.
"The state of Indiana's strategic intent to focus on life sciences and advanced manufacturing aligns with our business objectives," said Lori Gabrek, general manager at Beckman Coulter. "The area offers a favorable business environment and lower total cost of operations, plus a local work force with strong skills in both engineering and manufacturing. Our operations here have become a Center of Excellence for our discovery products - those developed for life science research and drug discovery."
The Indiana Economic Development Corporation extended Beckman Coulter up to $800,000 in performance-based tax credits and up to $300,000 in training grants. The city of Indianapolis and Develop Indy will support property tax abatement for Beckman Coulter before the Metropolitan Development Commission.
