Company news

July 14, 2010

Medical device maker Biomet Inc. plans an expansion of its northern Indiana facilities that could add about 280 jobs, according to the Associated Press. Company officials have discussed the plan with Kosciusko County officials as they've sought tax breaks on the $26 million project. Biomet attorney Richard Helm says the expansion in Warsaw would retain about 80 jobs and lead to some manufacturing being moved there from New Jersey. The project would also expand Biomet’s Warsaw distribution center.

Eli Lilly and Co. will cut 170 jobs—mostly in Indianapolis—from its manufacturing and quality division by the end of the year as it continues its efforts to slim down before losing revenue from patent expirations on its bestselling drugs. The Indianapolis-based drugmaker’s latest move will cut nearly 5 percent of its 3,600-person manufacturing work force in the United States. Lilly will ask for voluntary departures, but it also will eliminate the jobs of others involuntarily. Some jobs have already been eliminated through attrition. Lilly has announced nearly 2,000 job cuts toward its goal of 5,500 cuts, which the company set in September. The company is also trying to eliminate $1 billion in annual expenses by the end of 2011. At that time, it hopes to have a worldwide staff of about 35,000. It currently employs 12,400 in Indiana.

Hundreds of patients will be shifted from Indiana's state psychiatric hospitals into community-based care under a plan that officials say will eliminate more than 500 jobs, according to the Associated Press. The biggest changes and the layoffs will come at the Logansport and Richmond state hospitals, while units at the Evansville and Madison hospitals will be converted to care for those with serious mental illnesses. The moves by the Indiana Family and Social Services Adminstration are expected to reduce the number of patients at the six state hospitals by about 30 percent and save $15 million a year. The Logansport State Hospital will have 355 of its 900 workers laid off and 80 vacant positions eliminated. The Richmond State Hospital will lose 106 of its 600 workers.

A medical device company is seeking a property-tax abatement to offset costs associated with a $1.1 million expansion of its facility at 3735 N. Arlington Ave. in Indianapolis. New York-based Greatbatch Medical Inc. expects to create eight jobs at an average wage of $12.75 an hour and retain 146 jobs at an average wage of $14 an hour, according to the abatement request. Greatbatch specializes in cardiovascular products but is expanding into the orthopedics market, which is prompting the expansion, the company said.

Indianapolis International Film Festival

July 14, 2010

July 15-25
Indianapolis Museum of Art

 
I’ve already shared my thoughts on just about every movie in this year’s Indianapolis International Film Festival (if you missed the IBJ story, just click here. In short: There’s outstanding work to be seen across a wide range of genres and production budgets.

But the films themselves, while a core part, aren’t the only elements of the festival. IIFF also includes parties—an opener at Forty Five degrees after the July 15 screening of “Barry Munday” and a closer at Creation Café after the July 24 screening of “Skateland.” And there are panel discussions, including sessions on filmmaking, social issues on screen, and movie criticism (I’ll be involved in two of those).

Plus there’s the intangible camaraderie—the sense that you can strike up a conversation with just about anyone about the film you just saw or the one you are going to walk into—that is the lifeblood of a film festival. For more details and a complete schedule, click here.

Science Fiction Spectacular

July 14, 2010

July 16-17
Conner Prairie Amphitheatre


Some of the most familiar symphonic music in the world today is the themes from science fiction and fantasy films. Whether original (John Williams’ “Star Wars” music) or indelibly repurposed (the Strauss music used in “2001: A Space Odyssey”), the special-effects-laden images are made even more special by outstanding music.

It’s that music that will be celebrated on the prairie this weekend when the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra is joined by the original Mr. Sulu from “Star Trek,” George Takai, soprano Kristen Plumley, and the Indianapolis Symphonic Choir. Takai’s duties include narration from the science-fiction classic “The Day the Earth Stood Still.” Details here.

Roche Diagnostics, which runs its U.S. operations out of Indianapolis, has partnered with IBM to develop a DNA sequencer much faster and cheaper than current technology. Roche and IBM ultimately want to provide a test that performs whole genome sequencing for $100 to $1,000 per test. Such wide access could make genetic sequencing as standard as biopsies, for example, and then allow medical professionals to “personalize” medical treatment based on a person’s genes. As part of the agreement, Roche will fund continued development of the technology at IBM and provide additional resources and expertise through collaboration with Roche’s sequencing subsidiary, Maryland-based 454 Life Sciences. Roche will develop and market all products based on the technology.

Indianapolis-based insurer WellPoint Inc. said its California subsidiary will dial down rate hikes that drew national outrage earlier this year and helped spark a final push for health care reform, according to the Associated Press. WellPoint now plans to raise rates by 14 percent for California individual policyholders. It will cap rate hikes at 20 percent, even though the company said it would lose $100 million on the plans this year. In April WellPoint withdrew increases that averaged 25 percent—and topped out at 39 percent—after consumers and President Barack Obama expressed outrage. WellPoint defended the hikes by saying rising medical costs and healthy people dropping coverage during the recession were forcing it to raise rates. But an outside actuary also found math errors, which prompted last week’s reduction.

About $72 million in construction bids have been awarded so far for the new Wishard Hospital. The contracts total about 14 percent of the entire construction package for the $754 million project, said Matt Gutwein, president and CEO of Health & Hospital Corp. of Marion County, which owns the hospital. He said the new hospital is on schedule and slightly below budget. The 1.2-million-square-foot hospital will be built on 37 acres at the west end of the IUPUI campus. Bids that have been awarded include demolition work, as well as work on a parking garage, the hospital’s foundation and utilities. Wishard hopes to award all contracts by January.

"Reasons to be Pretty"

July 7, 2010

July 8 to Aug. 1
Phoenix Theatre


After earning a name for himself as a film writer/director (“In the Company of Men,” “Nurse Betty”) and as a playwright off-Broadway (“Fat Pig,” “The Mercy Seat”), former IPFW teacher Neil LaBute made his Broadway debut with his play “Reasons to be Pretty,” about a warehouse worker who discovers the danger of saying what he means—particularly when it comes to his girlfriend’s appearance.

Its local premiere stars Ryan Artzberger, a familiar face to Indy theater-goers, who recently led a Washington, D.C., production of the play to a twice-extended run. Having seen the piece in New York, I’m even more stoked to see it in a more intimate production at the Phoenix. Details here.

Darius De Haas

July 9-10
Cabaret at the Columbia Club

One of the pleasures of a lifetime of theater-going is seeing a relatively unknown performer, being wowed, making a mental note of his or her name, then seeing how the talent evolves.

I was first knocked out by Darius de Haas when he played dual roles in the Paper Mill Playhouse production of Stephen Schwartz’s “Children of Eden.” While I expected a long list of theater credits to follow, de Haas instead turned his career primarily to concert stages and cabarets, with a specialty in the jazz music of Billy Strayhorn. When he comes to Indy this weekend, De Haas will spend one set returning to his Broadway roots (his credits include “Rent” and “Carousel”) and another focusing on the music of Stevie Wonder.

  4. As a resident of one of these new Carmel Apartments the issue the local governments need to discuss is build quality & price. First none of these places is worth $1100 for a one bedroom. Downtown Carmel or Keystone at the Crossing in Indy. It doesn't matter. All require you to get in your car to get just about anywhere you need to go. I'm in one of the Carmel apartments now where after just 2.5 short years one of the kitchen cabinet doors is crooked and lawn and property maintenance seems to be lacking my old Indianapolis apartment which cost $300 less. This is one of the new star apartments. As they keep building throughout the area "deals" will start popping up creating shoppers. If your property is falling apart after year 3 what will it look like after year 5 or 10??? Why would one stay here if they could move to a new Broad Ripple in 2 to 3 years or another part of the Far Northside?? The complexes aren't going to let the "poor" move in without local permission so that's not that problem, but it the occupancy rate drops suddenly because the "Young" people moved back to Indy then look out.

  5. Why are you so concerned about Ace hardware? I don't understand why anyone goes there! Every time ive gone in the past, they don't have what I need and I end up going to the big box stores. I understand the service aspect and that they try to be helpful but if they are going to survive I think they might need to carry more specialty parts.
