Indianapolis-based Bell Techlogix, a provider of information technology services, announced Monday afternoon that it plans to add 204 jobs by 2016 as part of a $1.4 million expansion.
Bell said the investment will go toward leasing, equipping and renovating part of a 100,000-square-foot facility in the Mayflower Business Park at 4400 W. 96th St. It expects to occupy 53,000 square feet in the building, which should be operational by the end of October.
Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels was expected to attend the formal announcement on the city’s northwest side.
“Central Indiana has become a national leader in the growth of information technology, and here comes another example,” Daniels said in a prepared statement.
Bell has about 450 employees in the metropolitan area, where it has three locations: two in Indianapolis and one in Plainfield.
The company is a division of Bell Industries Inc., which is headquartered at Keystone Crossing.
Bell already has begun hiring for several positions, including call-center service-desk agents, computer-depot personnel, and IT engineers and architects. The company also plans to fill corporate positions in executive management, sales, marketing, internal IT, human resources and finance.
The Indiana Economic Development Corp. said it will provide Bell up to $1.12 million in performance-based tax credits and up to $125,000 in training grants based on the company’s job-creation plans.
Bell was founded in the 1950s in southern California. It since has evolved into a provider of technology products with locations throughout the nation and nearly 1,000 clients ranging from midsize companies to Fortune 100 corporations.
