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. If I were a developer I would be looking at the Fountain Square and Fletcher Place neighborhoods instead of Broad Ripple. I would avoid the dysfunctional BRVA with all of their headaches. It's like deciding between a Blackberry or an iPhone 5s smartphone. BR is greatly in need of updates. It has become stale and outdated. Whereas Fountain Square, Fletcher Place and Mass Ave have become the "new" Broad Ripples. Every time I see people on the strip in BR on the weekend I want to ask them, "How is it you are not familiar with Fountain Square or Mass Ave? You have choices and you choose BR?" Long vacant storefronts like the old Scholar's Inn Bake House and ZA, both on prominent corners, hurt the village's image. Many business on the strip could use updated facades. Cigarette butt covered sidewalks and graffiti covered walls don't help either. The whole strip just looks like it needs to be power washed. I know there is more to the BRV than the 700-1100 blocks of Broad Ripple Ave, but that is what people see when they think of BR. It will always be a nice place live, but is quickly becoming a not-so-nice place to visit.

  2. I sure hope so and would gladly join a law suit against them. They flat out rob people and their little punk scam artist telephone losers actually enjoy it. I would love to run into one of them some day!!

  3. Biggest scam ever!! Took 307 out of my bank ac count. Never received a single call! They prey on new small business and flat out rob them! Do not sign up with these thieves. I filed a complaint with the ftc. I suggest doing the same ic they robbed you too.

  4. Woohoo! We're #200!!! Absolutely disgusting. Bring on the congestion. Indianapolis NEEDS it.

  5. So Westfield invested about $30M in developing Grand Park and attendance to date is good enough that local hotel can't meet the demand. Carmel invested $180M in the Palladium - which generates zero hotel demand for its casino acts. Which Mayor made the better decision?
