Dealer Service Corporation (DSC), a financial services company specializing in automotive financing solutions, will invest $6.4 million to expand its global headquarters in Carmel, Indiana, according to the Indiana governor's office. The company, which will create up to 60 new jobs over the next three years, plans to lease and upgrade an additional 12,000 square feet at its existing operation. "The economic environment is perfect for finance companies to expand if they can raise the capital. DSC has prepared for this moment and we're ready to take advantage of the opportunity," says John Fuller, the company's president and CEO. "Indiana is a very conservative state with a very favorable tax climate for business, and the employees here are loyal, hardworking people that are committed to building a great place to live." The state has offered DSC up to $525,000 in performance-based tax credits and up to $60,000 in training grants, contingent on job creation; the city will also consider property tax abatement.
