Delta expanding operations in central Indiana

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Indianapolis-based Delta Faucet Co. plans to expand operations in Decatur County, adding up to 160 workers by 2014, the company announced Tuesday.

Delta said it plans to spend about $12 million to renovate and equip its 380,000-square-foot facility at 1425 West Main St. in Greensburg, about 50 miles southeast of Indianapolis. The facility currently has about 140 employees.

The renovation will allow Delta to manufacture shower products and acrylic bathtubs at the site, it said.

"Delta Faucet Co. has had operations in Greensburg since our founder, Alex Manoogian, opened a plant there in 1959, so we are pleased to be able to bring this growth to a community where we have such a long, rich history," Rick Marshall, Delta's vice president of operations and supply chain management, said in a prepared statement.

The company said it will begin hiring production workers, assemblers, material handlers, maintenance and quality technicians, engineers, team leaders, and support associates later this year.

The Indiana Economic Development Corp. offered Delta up to $1 million in conditional tax credits and up to $200,000 in training grants based on the company's job-creation plans. Decatur County approved additional tax abatement.

Delta, a division of Taylor, Mich.-based Masco Corp., has 500 employees in Indiana and more than 1,700 worldwide.

  • Aaawww!
    Really happy for the folks in Greesburg. But when I read the headline, I was hoping for some more flights in and out of Indy.
  • Cool!
    Great to hear the expansion and about some new jobs in the area. I have both Delta and Moen products, which I installed myself. The Delta fixtures are vastly higher quality.

  1. If I were a developer I would be looking at the Fountain Square and Fletcher Place neighborhoods instead of Broad Ripple. I would avoid the dysfunctional BRVA with all of their headaches. It's like deciding between a Blackberry or an iPhone 5s smartphone. BR is greatly in need of updates. It has become stale and outdated. Whereas Fountain Square, Fletcher Place and Mass Ave have become the "new" Broad Ripples. Every time I see people on the strip in BR on the weekend I want to ask them, "How is it you are not familiar with Fountain Square or Mass Ave? You have choices and you choose BR?" Long vacant storefronts like the old Scholar's Inn Bake House and ZA, both on prominent corners, hurt the village's image. Many business on the strip could use updated facades. Cigarette butt covered sidewalks and graffiti covered walls don't help either. The whole strip just looks like it needs to be power washed. I know there is more to the BRV than the 700-1100 blocks of Broad Ripple Ave, but that is what people see when they think of BR. It will always be a nice place live, but is quickly becoming a not-so-nice place to visit.

  2. I sure hope so and would gladly join a law suit against them. They flat out rob people and their little punk scam artist telephone losers actually enjoy it. I would love to run into one of them some day!!

  3. Biggest scam ever!! Took 307 out of my bank ac count. Never received a single call! They prey on new small business and flat out rob them! Do not sign up with these thieves. I filed a complaint with the ftc. I suggest doing the same ic they robbed you too.

  4. Woohoo! We're #200!!! Absolutely disgusting. Bring on the congestion. Indianapolis NEEDS it.

  5. So Westfield invested about $30M in developing Grand Park and attendance to date is good enough that local hotel can't meet the demand. Carmel invested $180M in the Palladium - which generates zero hotel demand for its casino acts. Which Mayor made the better decision?
