Ingram Micro Opened Plainfield Indiana, Facility
The Irvine, California-based company is investing nearly $4.8 million to lease and equip its new IT Asset Disposition (ITAD) Processing Center at 2675 Reeves Road in Plainfield. This facility marks the fourth Ingram Micro ITAD processing center in the U.S., joining centers in Indianapolis; Chandler, Arizona; and Pine Brook, New Jersey. At 200,000 square feet, the Plainfield facility nearly triples the ITAD processing capacity for Ingram Micro in central Indiana and will provide a broad range of efficient, safe and secure technology disposition services, including data erasure and drive destruction, processing, remarketing and responsible recycling.
Ingram Micro employs approximately 2,000 full-time and seasonal associates at its Indiana facilities across Indianapolis, Jeffersonville and Plainfield, serving as part of the company’s global network of 30,000 associates around the world. The company is currently hiring for office, supervisory, warehouse and management positions.
“We are proud to open our second ITAD facility in greater Indianapolis, where we have a long history, going back to the beginning of our ITAD business in 2001,” said Todd Zegers, vice president, ITAD, Commerce & Lifecycle Services. “The market for enterprise-level IT asset disposition services has never been stronger, and we needed to add processing capacity to meet the growing demand from our U.S. clients. Our team has worked together flawlessly to bring this state-of-the-art facility online, and our clients will see an immediately benefit with faster through-put times for their end-of-service IT assets. Once fully operational, the facility will bring over 150 jobs to the Indianapolis metro area with room to scale up even more to meet increasing volumes.”
The company has already hired 80 new employees to support the new operation in Hendricks County, which is part of the company’s Commerce and Lifecycle Services business division, and plans to grow its team to 151 associates by the end of 2023.
"Ingram Micro has a deep commitment to Indiana, which is proven by its continued efforts to grow and expand in our state," said Indiana Secretary of Commerce Jim Schellinger. "We are incredibly grateful for the high-quality careers they provide to Hoosiers in Indianapolis, Jeffersonville and now Plainfield, and we remain committed to providing a pro-growth business environment that allows them to flourish for years to come."
Today's news comes two years after Ingram Micro's October 2017 announcement to locate its new Indiana technology facility in Jeffersonville, which is slated to create up to 550 new jobs by the end of 2021.
The IEDC offered Ingram Micro up to $975,000 in conditional tax credits based on the company’s job creation plans. These incentives are performance-based, meaning the company is eligible to claim incentives once Hoosiers are hired. The town of Plainfield offered additional incentives at the request of Hendricks County Economic Development Commission.
“The town of Plainfield is happy to be the home of the newest Ingram Micro facility in Indiana,” said Plainfield Town Council President Robin Brandgard. “We have one of the largest and best maintained industrial business park areas in the Midwest region and are internationally known as a center for logistics excellence. Ingram Micro is contributing substantially to our economy with the addition of 151 jobs; new jobs brings more money back into our community."
