Container maker Arrow to expand, add 65 jobs

Corrugated container manufacturer Arrow Container LLC plans to expand operations at its Indianapolis headquarters, more than doubling its staff over the next four years.

Arrow, which makes and supplies a variety of packaging materials, plans to invest $3.5 million in new machinery and improvements at its 80,000-square-foot facility on the city’s southeast side, economic development officials announced Monday.

Founded in Indianapolis in 1982, the 60-employee company plans to begin hiring 65 additional production associates later this year.

Indiana Economic Development Corp. offered Arrow as much as $400,000 in performance-based tax credits and up to $75,000 in training grants based on its job-creation plans. The city will consider additional property tax abatement at the request of Develop Indy.
