Brotherhood Mutual Insurance Company Expands Fort Wayne, Indiana, Headquarters
The company will invest $25.5 million to add 88,000 square feet of meeting and office space to its existing facility at 6400 Brotherhood Way.
The additional office space will allow Brotherhood Mutual to add as many as 300 new employees in the future, while the new auditorium space will be used for weekly chapel services and employee training sessions. Construction is slated to begin next month and expected to be complete by September 2020.
The IEDC offered Brotherhood Mutual up to $925,000 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. Northeast Indiana Works will provide hiring and training assistance. Fort Wayne City Council will consider additional incentives.
"We're blessed to continue our growth here in Fort Wayne," said Mark Robison, Chairman & President of Brotherhood Mutual. "As we look to the future, we will continue our goal of helping ministries thrive. Our customers trust us to provide innovative insurance coverage and risk management resources, specifically designed to help them operate safely and effectively every day. This project will allow us to serve more ministries while providing excellent customer service they deserve."
"Brotherhood Mutual has been providing Hoosiers with great job opportunities for more than 100 years,” said Elaine Bedel, president of the Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC). “With this growth, it is clear that the company is committed to remaining a staple in northeast Indiana for generations to come, serving customers across the country while contributing to the Fort Wayne community here at home.”
"I'm encouraged that Fort Wayne continues to experience growth and success," said Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry. "Brotherhood Mutual's plans to expand and add jobs at their local headquarters demonstrates their ongoing commitment to making our city a better place to live, work and play. We appreciate their believe in our community. Together, we're moving forward in a positive direction."
