Greenwood-based Avram Worldwide said today that it will expand its headquarters and distribution operations in the city, and plans to create 78 jobs by 2013.

The minority-owned transportation management, warehousing and distribution company said it will invest $885,000 to lease and equip an existing 20,000-square-foot building near its current headquarters on State Road 135.

Avram said it will begin hiring additional client services and administrative support personnel by the end of the year.

“With all of our resources under one roof, we are positioned to be an even stronger resource for companies throughout the world that seek superior logistics solutions,” Avram President Rob Richardson said in a prepared statement.

The Indiana Economic Development Corp. offered Avram up to $900,000 in performance-based tax credits and up to $40,000 in training grants based on the company’s job-creation plans. The Johnson County Board of Commissioners offered personal property tax abatement at the request of the Johnson County Development Corp.
