Sanders Pre-Cast Concrete Systems Inc. a designer, manufacturer and developer of pre-cast concrete, will expand its operations in Boone County, Indiana. The company plans to create up to 39 new jobs by 2021.
The company will invest more than $1.5 million to expand, renovate and equip its current 175,000-square-foot facility at 6142 S. Indianapolis Road in Whitestown. Sanders Pre-Cast will renovate its existing 48,000-square-foot building, allowing the company to produce large insulated warehouse walls and provide service for on-site installations.
The company began renovations in late 2016 and expects to begin operations this month, with plans to begin shipping products and providing on-site installations in March and April. Founded in 1997, Sanders Pre-Cast offers mechanically-stabilized earth wall systems, three-sided arch bridge structures, box culverts, hollow core walls and sound barriers.
“Indiana is an ideal location for our expansion plans,” said Mark Sanders, CEO & Owner of Sanders Pre-Cast. “We are excited to be back manufacturing and installing large insulated warehouse walls for our customers.”
As an incentive, Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered Sanders Pre-Cast up to $175,000 in conditional tax credits and $29,000 in training grants based on the company’s job creation plans. These tax incentives are performance-based, meaning until Hoosiers are hired, the company is not eligible to claim incentives. In addition, the town of Whitestown approved additional incentives at the request of the Boone County Economic Development Corporation.
“Companies like Sanders Pre-Cast call Indiana home because of our top business climate and workforce,” Governor Eric Holcomb said. “Sanders has been helping build the infrastructure our growing economy demands for nearly two decades. In turn, Indiana must invest in its network of roads and bridges to meet the needs of businesses.”
“As Whitestown continues to be the fastest growing community in Indiana, we are proud that the quality products that support that growth can be found right here,” said Dax Norton, Town Manager of Whitestown. “Sanders Pre-Cast Systems is a long time Whitestown business and we are happy to see them continue to grow in our community.”
