Fishers mainstay Reynolds Farm Equipment is building an $8 million headquarters on U.S. 31 north of Westfield, moving the company’s agricultural operation closer to its rural customer base.

The sprawling 63,000-square-foot building at 1451 E. 276th St. in Atlanta will replace Reynolds’ location in Sheridan, seven miles away. President Gary Reynolds said the company has outgrown the small shop.

“This will be the largest facility in the company,” he said. Reynolds also has shops in Fishers, Anderson, Lebanon, Mooresville and Muncie, in addition to specialty golf-and-turf operations in Ohio and Kentucky.

The high-profile Fishers location along State Road 37 will focus on lawn-and-garden and light-construction business, Reynolds said. Staff there also will continue to handle the company’s growing Internet sales.

Reynolds’ new headquarters will include training space for up to 50 employees, he said, plus a repair shop and the farm-equipment sales operation.

Noblesville-based Peterson Architecture is overseeing the project design.

Work has begun on the 15-acre site, and Reynolds expects to move in after Thanksgiving. Employees will transfer from Sheridan and Fishers, he said.

“I’m sure before it’s all said and done, we’ll have to hire some more,” he said.

Reynolds has about 225 employees company-wide.

  1. How can any company that has the cash and other assets be allowed to simply foreclose and not pay the debt? Simon, pay the debt and sell the property yourself. Don't just stiff the bank with the loan and require them to find a buyer.

  2. If you only knew....

  3. The proposal is structured in such a way that a private company (who has competitors in the marketplace) has struck a deal to get "financing" through utility ratepayers via IPL. Competitors to BlueIndy are at disadvantage now. The story isn't "how green can we be" but how creative "financing" through captive ratepayers benefits a company whose proposal should sink or float in the competitive marketplace without customer funding. If it was a great idea there would be financing available. IBJ needs to be doing a story on the utility ratemaking piece of this (which is pretty complicated) but instead it suggests that folks are whining about paying for being green.

  4. The facts contained in your post make your position so much more credible than those based on sheer emotion. Thanks for enlightening us.

  5. Please consider a couple of economic realities: First, retail is more consolidated now than it was when malls like this were built. There used to be many department stores. Now, in essence, there is one--Macy's. Right off, you've eliminated the need for multiple anchor stores in malls. And in-line retailers have consolidated or folded or have stopped building new stores because so much of their business is now online. The Limited, for example, Next, malls are closing all over the country, even some of the former gems are now derelict.Times change. And finally, as the income level of any particular area declines, so do the retail offerings. Sad, but true.
