Casey’s General Stores Inc. said it plans to build a $30 million distribution center in Indiana that will have as many as 185 employees by 2019.

Ankeny, Iowa-based Casey’s said Tuesday that construction will begin in November on the 250,000-square-foot center in the Vigo County Industrial Park in Terre Haute, about 75 miles west of Indianapolis. The new facility is expected to open by fall 2015.

Casey’s, founded in 1969, operates 1,788 gas station-convenience stores in 14 states, including 80 in Indiana. The company primarily locates stores in communities with populations of 5,000 or less.

The company has about 29,000 employees, with more than 850 in Indiana. It’s only other distribution facility is in its home city of Ankeny.

The Indiana Economic Development Corp. said it would give Casey’s up to $1.4 million in tax credits if it meets its job commitments. It also will provide up to $100,000 in training grants.

In addition, the IEDC will provide Vigo County with as much as $200,000 in infrastructure assistance from the state's Industrial Development Grant Fund. Vigo County will consider additional incentives for the company.
