Apple Establishes Hendricks County, Indiana, Distribution Hub
The company plans to invest $100 million in Indiana from its Advanced Manufacturing Fund over the next few years to establish the Clayton location. The new facility, which will be operated by XPO Logistics Supply Chain, will accelerate delivery times for Apple’s customers in Indiana and across the country.
“We’re thrilled to join Apple in creating hundreds of jobs in this next-generation distribution center," Malcolm Wilson, CEO of XPO Logistics – Europe, said in a statement. "Our team of experts will use the latest technology to quickly fulfill personalized versions of Apple's iconic products for consumers."
The Hendricks County project is part of a larger announcement the company made to invest $430 billion and create as many as 20,000 new jobs across the U.S. during the next five years.
“Indiana’s healthy, business-friendly ecosystem continues to bring innovative, cutting-edge companies like Apple to the Hoosier State," said Governor Eric J. Holcomb. "I couldn’t be more grateful that with a world of options to choose from, Apple selected our state to put down new roots. We’re excited for this tremendous investment, the 500 new career opportunities it brings to Hoosiers and what this commitment means for Apple’s potential future growth in Indiana."
The Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC) offered XPO Logistics Supply Chain Inc. up to $5 million in conditional tax credits based on the company’s job creation plans. These tax credits are performance-based, meaning the company is eligible to claim incentives once Hoosiers are hired. The town of Clayton supports the project.
"We are thrilled to welcome Apple as the newest member of Hendricks County's thriving industrial ecosystem,” Brian Bilger, executive director, of the Hendricks County Economic Development Partnership, said in the news release. "This project's significant investment and job creation will promote the economic vitality of Hendricks County, its businesses, and residents. We look forward to supporting Apple as they grow in our community."
