Indianapolis-based Axia Technology Partners LLC, a provider of data hosting services, said it will invest $2.8 million to expand its central Indiana operations, creating up to 45 jobs by 2017.
Axia will lease an additional 2,500 square feet at its headquarters in the Gold Building in downtown Indianapolis, adding up to 34 jobs.
In addition, the company will lease and equip new data center space at the 86,000-square-foot Data Cave facility in Columbus, Ind., creating up to 11 jobs.
"Our management team wanted to grow our business right here in Indiana and after carefully reviewing all options, which included several other states where we already have data center relationships, it became clear that Indiana was indeed the best place to grow,” said Josh Ross, Axia’s managing partner.
Founded in 2008, Axia provides data hosting, Internet access and fiber optic construction for businesses of all sizes. The company, which has an additional office in Bloomington along with 12 data center partnerships throughout the United States, said it has generated triple-digit revenue growth for each of the past four years, with a peak of 390 percent in 2012.
The Indiana Economic Development Corp. offered Axia up to $425,000 in tax credits and up to $30,000 in training grants based on the company's job-creation plans.
