Security firm's job-creation plans draw state incentives

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Allegion PLC’s plans to add employees at its North American headquarters in Carmel could earn the global security firm as much as $2 million in tax credits from the Indiana Economic Development Corp.

The company, newly spun off from Irish industrial conglomerate Ingersoll Rand PLC, promised to create as many as 100 jobs during 2014. The tax credits will be awarded only if workers are hired, the IEDC said.

Central Indiana already is home base for about 1,000 Allegion employees—split between its 12,000-square-foot corporate center in Carmel and a 380,000-square foot manufacturing facility on Indianapolis’ east side. Its global headquarters is in Dublin, Ireland.

Dozens of workers looked on Wednesday morning as CEO Dave Petratis unveiled a new Allegion sign atop the corporate headquarters building just east of U.S. 31 in Carmel. IBJ reported the spinoff plans in July and the company's expansion plans Dec. 2.

As a stand-alone corporation, Allegion forecasts $2 billion in annual revenue and market value of $4.2 billion, which puts the company in league with some of Indiana’s largest companies, such as Allison Transmission, Steel Dynamics and Vectren Corp.

Allegion shares were down 35 cents Wednesday morning, to $42.21 each.

  • 2 million that's it
    Someone should let them know of they have a fundraiser for Scott Fadness he will probably give them 2 million cash and tell Fishers tax payers its good for down town Fishers.
  • But I do like to whine...
    That's just not fair! Aren't there any tax credits for me as I sit on my couch watching Jerry Springer getting ready to go to my part-time job at McDonald's?

    Tax the poor...give to the rich. Its the Hoosier way

  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.
