Bell Techlogix plans local expansion, 204 jobs

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

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.

  1. Why is the street configuration necessary? New York and Michigan get congested enough as 4-lane one-way streets, imagine how bad they'll be when they are only 2-lanes in each direction. Furthermore, there are TONS of flashing lights and yield signs for pedestrians EVERYWHERE on IUPUI's campus, but I swear I'm the only driver who yields to the pedestrians there. Just enforce the existing signs!

  2. Excellent investment! Many times people are too shortsighted to see that investments such as these are just as important as "fixing potholes". And, perhaps I missed it, but could you point out where your / our pockets are being pilfered in this deal, Italiano? I didn't read where any of your (or my) tax dollars are involved.

  3. I see the same whiney liberals complaining about every single thing that Mayor Ballard does to improve the city. There could be an article about him saving a drowning child and your liberals would find a way to complain about.

  4. Oh snap! It's on! Ballard vs. Hogsett. Indy is due for a "real" mayoral race, this will be epic!

  5. This is obviously good for the city and all of its residents. Would you object to any improvements to anything in our city until every pothole is filled? Why? Look, there's a proposal for roads in place, with funding proposed as well, it simply requires the City Council and the Major to agree. It will happen (not soon enough, perhaps, but it will happen). In the meantime, yes, let's do the common sense, demonstrably smart things that will make our city better.
