Printing firm to bring 360 jobs to Jeffersonville

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The Standard Register Co. said it will locate a new national print and distribution center in Jeffersonville, creating up to 360 jobs by 2016.

The Dayton, Ohio-based business communications firm will invest nearly $10 million to lease and renovate a 335,000-square-foot building in the River Ridge Commerce Center. The facility, which is expected to be in operation this summer, will house digital printing, kitting and distribution operations.

Some operations from existing Standard Register facilities will be transferred to the new center. Among the advantages of the Jeffersonville site is its proximity to the United Parcel Service’s Worldport air hub at Louisville International Airport, the company said.

The Indiana Economic Development Corp. has offered Standard Register up to $2.3 million in conditional tax credits and up to $175,000 in training grants based on the firm’s job-creation plans.

The 100-year-old firm was founded by brothers John Q. and William C. Sherman in 1912. It now has more than 2,200 employees at 30 U.S. locations.

The Jeffersonville center will be Standard Register’s second Indiana location. The firm also has a facility in Shelbyville that employs about 85 full-time workers.

Standard Register shares trade on the New York Stock Exchange. They were trading mid-morning Tuesday at 55 cents, up 2 cents on the day.

  1. Can your dog sign a marriage license or personally state that he wishes to join you in a legal union? If not then no, you cannot marry him. When you teach him to read, write, and speak a discernible language, then maybe you'll have a reasonable argument. Thanks for playing!

  2. Look no further than Mike Rowe, the former host of dirty jobs, who was also a classically trained singer.

  3. Current law states income taxes are paid to the county of residence not county of income source. The most likely scenario would be some alteration of the income tax distribution formula so money earned in Marion co. would go to Marion Co by residents of other counties would partially be distributed to Marion co. as opposed to now where the entirety is held by the resident's county.

  4. This is more same-old, same-old from a new generation of non-progressive 'progressives and fear mongers. One only needs to look at the economic havoc being experienced in California to understand the effect of drought on economies and people's lives. The same mindset in California turned a blind eye to the growth of population and water needs in California, defeating proposal after proposal to build reservoirs, improve water storage and delivery infrastructure...and the price now being paid for putting the demands of a raucous minority ahead of the needs of many. Some people never, never learn..

  5. I wonder if I can marry him too? Considering we are both males, wouldn't that be a same sex marriage as well? If they don't honor it, I'll scream discrimination just like all these people have....
