Startup logistics firm s2f worldwide LLC will invest $10.8 million to set up its headquarters and distribution center in Plainfield, creating 250 jobs by 2013.

State economic development officials announced the company’s plans early Monday.

As IBJ reported in January, s2f has a number of high-profile local investors including wireless phone distributor Brightpoint Inc., Conseco Inc. founder Stephen Hilbert, Lewis Wagner law firm co-founder Robert Wagner, and Michael “Mickey” Maurer, founder of National Bank of Indianapolis and co-owner of IBJ Media. Prominent attorney Lacy Johnson is an investor and chairman of the firm’s board.

The company, a minority business enterprise that offers a range of transportation management, warehousing and distribution services, will lease a 200,000-square-foot building near Indianapolis International Airport.

Other investors include Stephen Simon, son of mall pioneer Herb Simon and the managing member of Simon Equity Partners; casino operator Jack Binion; Earl Scott, co-founder of the Maryland telecom infrastructure firm DYNIS LLC; and Frank White Jr., a Washington, D.C.-based investor who founded an IT firm focusing on the intelligence community.

s2f is led by CEO Randall Lewis, who last August left WellPoint Inc., where he was executive vice president and chief compliance officer.

The new firm will serve the automotive, chemical, government, life sciences, mass retail, technology and telecommunications sectors, using Brightpoint’s licensed technology.

It plans to begin hiring warehouse workers and supervisors next month; operations are expected to commence during the second quarter.

"Plainfield's infrastructure makes it an ideal location for s2f. We look forward to bringing jobs to our state and becoming an engaged community partner," Lewis said in a prepared statement.

The Indiana Economic Development Corp. offered s2f worldwide as much as $2 million in performance-based tax credits and up to $45,000 in training grants. The town of Plainfield will consider additional property tax abatements at the request of the Hendricks County Economic Development Partnership.

  1. This is still my favorite Mexican restaurant in town. What I do love about the new version is it is much quieter than the most recent version. TV's were off, the music wasn't too loud, and the wait staff were not hyperactive like they had been the past few times I had been there. I just wish they would bring back the MOLE for the enchiladas!

  2. Not a bad paper. There is a need for local community news and city government issues. Don't really need the owner's constant national political rants. We all know where they stand by now.

  3. What nice people. Menard should've known better than to team up with the guy who robbed and drove Conseco to ashes. I'm surprised Timothy Durham isn't involved in this.

  4. Hello, I am Maris Peters, currently living in Texas city, USA. I am a widow at the moment with three kids and i was stuck in a financial situation in August 2014 and i needed to refinance and pay my bills. I tried seeking loans from various loan Companies both private and corporate but never with success, and most banks declined my credit. But as God would have it, I was introduced to a Man of God a private loan lender who gave me a loan of $65,000USD and today am a business owner and my kids are doing well at the moment, if you must contact any firm or company with reference to securing a loan without collateral , no credit check, no co signer with just 2% interest rate and better repayment plans and schedule, please contact Mr William David. He doesn’t know that am doing this but am so happy now and i decided to let people know more about him and also i want God to bless him more.You can contact him through his email: Davidloanfirm@yahoo.com

  5. It is beyond me how anyone can think this was a "bad deal" for the state! If they could take the money back then, yes, but they can't! Protections were built in the agreement. Now, if they roll the roads up and take them away, I will agree that it was a bad deal. Otherwise, the only way to have paid for the infrastructure that was badly needed was for the state to issue bonds....that is a four letter synonym for debt folks!!
