Life sciences firm Hycor moving HQ, jobs to central Indiana

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

California-based Hycor Biomedical Inc. plans to move its headquarters to central Indiana, creating as many as 20 jobs in the next two years, state economic development officials announced Wednesday morning.

Hycor, which makes diagnostic products for clinical laboratories, is leasing space on East 98th Street while it lines up a permanent site for its operations.

Founded in 1981 as a research and development company under the name Hybridoma Sciences, Hycor entered the diagnostics market in 1984. It now provides urinalysis, allergy and autoimmune testing products for clinical laboratories, hospitals and doctors' offices worldwide.

"Given Indiana's central location, the exceptional life sciences talent based here, as well as the economic incentives being offered by the state, we believe this is the ideal time for Hycor to relocate as our business continues to grow," CEO Richard Aderman said in a prepared statement.

Indiana Economic Development Corp. offered the company up to $640,000 in performance-based tax credits based on the job creation plans.

  • 20 JOBS
    That much money for maybe 20 jobs WOW

    Sounds like a good deal to me. #1 - If the company grows, it will turn into more jobs. Rather have that chance than none at all. #2 - they'll pay taxes, which are typically higher for businesses. #3 - 20 jobs at an average of $40k per year is $0.8 million in salaries paid to indiana residents.

    They give us 20 jobs and we give them 640,000

    1. President Obama has referred to the ACA as "Obamacare" any number of times; one thing it is not, if you don't qualify for a subsidy, is "affordable".

    2. One important correction, Indiana does not have an ag-gag law, it was soundly defeated, or at least changed. It was stripped of everything to do with undercover pictures and video on farms. There is NO WAY on earth that ag gag laws will survive a constitutional challenge. None. Period. Also, the reason they are trying to keep you out, isn't so we don't show the blatant abuse like slamming pigs heads into the ground, it's show we don't show you the legal stuf... the anal electroctions, the cutting off of genitals without anesthesia, the tail docking, the cutting off of beaks, the baby male chicks getting thrown alive into a grinder, the deplorable conditions, downed animals, animals sitting in their own excrement, the throat slitting, the bolt guns. It is all deplorable behavior that doesn't belong in a civilized society. The meat, dairy and egg industries are running scared right now, which is why they are trying to pass these ridiculous laws. What a losing battle.

    3. Eating there years ago the food was decent, nothing to write home about. Weird thing was Javier tried to pass off the story the way he ended up in Indy was he took a bus he thought was going to Minneapolis. This seems to be the same story from the founder of Acapulco Joe's. Stopped going as I never really did trust him after that or the quality of what being served.

    4. Indianapolis...the city of cricket, chains, crime and call centers!

    5. "In real life, a farmer wants his livestock as happy and health as possible. Such treatment give the best financial return." I have to disagree. What's in the farmer's best interest is to raise as many animals as possible as quickly as possible as cheaply as possible. There is a reason grass-fed beef is more expensive than corn-fed beef: it costs more to raise. Since consumers often want more food for lower prices, the incentive is for farmers to maximize their production while minimizing their costs. Obviously, having very sick or dead animals does not help the farmer, however, so there is a line somewhere. Where that line is drawn is the question.
