Dental startup locating in Noblesville

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Therametric Technologies Inc., a developer of dental health technology, said today it will locate its headquarters and manufacturing operations in Noblesville, and plans to create 40 jobs by 2013.

The startup, located at the Indiana University Emerging Technologies Center on 10th Street in Indianapolis near the downtown canal, said it will invest nearly $10 million to build a 26,000-square-foot facility in Noblesville. The company will locate in the Smithfield Business Park at 146th Street and Cumberland Road.

Therametric employs 16 people and plans to begin hiring for administrative, information technology and manufacturing jobs late this year. Construction of its facility is set to begin in September and should be finished by spring.

The building will house manufacturing operations for Therametric's proprietary FluoreCam detection system. The system uses light fluorescence from a handheld instrument to detect tooth decay by analyzing changes in the mineral content of tooth enamel.

The Indiana Economic Development Corp. offered the company up to $270,000 in performance-based tax credits and $17,000 in training grants based on its job-creation plans. The city of Noblesville will consider additional property-tax abatement.

  1. I am so impressed that the smoking ban FAILED in Kokomo! I might just move to your Awesome city!

  2. way to much breweries being built in indianapolis. its going to be saturated market, if not already. when is enough, enough??

  3. This house is a reminder of Hamilton County history. Its position near the interstate is significant to remember what Hamilton County was before the SUPERBROKERs, Navients, commercial parks, sprawling vinyl villages, and acres of concrete retail showed up. What's truly Wasteful is not reusing a structure that could still be useful. History isn't confined to parks and books.

  4. To compare Connor Prairie or the Zoo to a random old house is a big ridiculous. If it were any where near the level of significance there wouldn't be a major funding gap. Put a big billboard on I-69 funded by the tourism board for people to come visit this old house, and I doubt there would be any takers, since other than age there is no significance whatsoever. Clearly the tax payers of Fishers don't have a significant interest in this project, so PLEASE DON'T USE OUR VALUABLE MONEY. Government money is finite and needs to be utilized for the most efficient and productive purposes. This is far from that.

  5. I only tried it 2x and didn't think much of it both times. With the new apts plus a couple other of new developments on Guilford, I am surprised it didn't get more business. Plus you have a couple of subdivisions across the street from it. I hope Upland can keep it going. Good beer and food plus a neat environment and outdoor seating.
