Growing distributor to expand into Greenwood

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

A distribution company that specializes in handling food for retailers has outgrown its Plainfield space and plans to take up another 400,000 square feet in Greenwood.

Prime Distribution Services Inc. is considering a long-term lease at the Precedent South Business Park, where $6.1 million would be spent on lease and building improvements.

Prime Distribution estimates that it would add 35 employees by 2016. Johnson County Development Corp. CEO Cheryl Morphew noted that the expected pay range—$17.88 per hour to $20.26 per hour—is above the county’s average for the industry, which is $17.43 per hour.

Morphew also noted that the lease would make the warehouse at 760 Commerce Parkway East Drive fully occupied. Most of the capital improvements will be made by Prime Distribution, but building owner AP Commerce Parkway LLC could be reimbursed for $125,000 of its expenses by the city of Greenwood.

The Greenwood Redevelopment Commission will conduct a special meeting Wednesday morning to consider the incentive. Greenwood would tap its tax-increment financing district revenue to pay for the incentive.

Prime Distribution, founded in 1990, serves Wal-Mart grocery suppliers and occupies 1.2 million square feet at its headquarters and distribution center at 1750 All Points Parkway in Plainfield.

Prime also has facilities in Mesquite, Texas; Stockton, Calif.; and Atlanta.

  1. what Steve is doing and if he is on another radio station. That is the station I will listen to.

  2. From the story: "The city of Indianapolis also will consider tax incentives and funding for infrastructure required for the project, according to IEDC." Why would the City need to consider additional tax incentives when Lowe's has already bought the land and reached an agreement with IEDC to bring the jobs? What that tells me is that the City has already pledged the incentives, unofficially, and they just haven't had time to push it through the MDC yet. Either way, subsidizing $10/hour jobs is going to do nothing toward furthering the Mayor's stated goal of attracting middle and upper-middle class residents to Marion County.

  3. Ron Spencer and the entire staff of Theater on the Square embraced IndyFringe when it came to Mass Ave in 2005. TOTS was not only a venue but Ron and his friends created, presented and appeared in shows which embraced the 'spirit of the fringe'. He's weathered all the storms and kept smiling ... bon voyage and thank you.

  4. Not sure how many sushi restaurants are enough, but there are three that I know of in various parts of downtown proper and all are pretty good.

  5. Rick, how does granting theright to marry to people choosing to marry same-sex partners harm the lives of those who choose not to? I cannot for the life of me see any harm to people who choose not to marry someone of the same sex. We understand your choice to take the parts of the bible literally in your life. That is fine but why force your religious beliefs on others? I'm hoping the judges do the right thing and declare the ban unconstitutional so all citizens of Wisconsin and Indiana have the same marriage rights and that those who chose someone of the same sex do not have less rights than others.
