Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Rolls-Royce Corp. has opened a $42 million production facility near Indianapolis International Airport that expects to employ about 100 high-tech personnel by next year, the company announced Monday.

Plans for the facility, which will make engine compressor parts known as banded stators, were announced in March 2012.

The new production line was installed in a vacant building in the AmeriPlex Industrial Park, at 5345 Decatur Blvd. Rolls-Royce signed a long-term lease for 81,500 square feet of space in what’s been known as the National Building.

The plant is the 12th Rolls-Royce facility in Indiana and the second facility designed to focus on specific production capabilities. The first was the Rolls-Royce LiftFan Factory, which opened in Plainfield in 2010.

Rolls-Royce has more than 4,000 employees in Indianapolis
