Indianapolis-based Home Health Depot Inc., a home medical equipment company, said on Monday that it plans an expansion that will create up to 80 jobs in the state by 2016.
The company said it will invest $1.4 million to expand its headquarters on the north side of Indianapolis and its customer-fulfillment operations across the state.
Home Health Depot, which currently has 99 full-time Indiana employees, plans to begin hiring new logistics, administrative, finance and information technology workers this month.
"We are excited to launch this latest phase in the growth of our company with the support of the state of Indiana and the city of Indianapolis," CEO David Hartley said.
The 14-year-old company has eight Indiana facilities in addition to facilities in six other Midwest locations. The company has been on a growth tear, with revenue from 2009 to 2010 doubling, to more than $13 million. IBJ in June ranked Home Health Depot fifth on its list of fastest-growing Indianapolis area private companies.
In the summer of 2010, Nate Feltman, former Indiana commerce secretary, gave up his partner position at Baker & Daniels to become president.
The Indiana Economic Development Corp. offered Home Health Depot up to $700,000 in tax credits and up to $60,000 in training grants based on the company's job-creation plans.
