Wilson Industrial Sales Investing $2.2 Million On Relocating To A New Facility Within Indiana

Wilson Industrial Sales Company, a wholesale marketing and distribution company of inorganic chemicals, is investing $2.2 million on a new facility in Rensselaer, Jasper County, Indiana. Founded in 1960, Wilson delivers more than 300,000 tons of products annually to industrial and agricultural customers in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

The company will relocate from neighboring Newton County on Indiana Highway 16 to a 10,000 square-foot facility on State Road 114 in Rensselaer. Wilson has already begun hiring 15 additional logistics, administrative and sales associates to its current workforce of 35 associates.

"Companies like Wilson Industrial Sales know that location is everything," said Dan Hasler, Secretary of Commerce and chief executive officer of the Indiana Economic Development Corporation. "With more than 80 percent of the nation's population within a day's drive, Indiana provides an unequivocal value to businesses that no other state can match."

"Wilson Industrial Sales is excited to expand into Jasper County and remain a Hoosier enterprise," said Steve Wilson, president of Wilson Industrial Sales. "This expansion places Wilson Industrial Sales in the best position for current and future growth."

As an incentive to relocating within the state, Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered Wilson Industrial Sales Company, Inc. up to $130,000 in conditional tax credits based on the company's job creation plans. These tax credits are performance-based, meaning until Hoosiers are hired, the company is not eligible to claim incentives. The Jasper County Council also approved additional property tax abatement.

"Jasper County is pleased to welcome Wilson Industrial Sales to our family of businesses," said Ron Sipkema, president of the Jasper County Council. "They are good people that run a good business and we look forward to a long and successful relationship. This project demonstrates the attractiveness of Jasper County and northwest Indiana as an outstanding area to invest."
