A software firm that moved last year to the Meridian-Kessler neighborhood already is planning to expand its headquarters to accommodate more growth.

In December 2012, TCC Software Solutions bought the property at 1022 E. 52nd St. It includes a 13,600-square-foot structure that the firm renovated and began occupying in July 2014.

The former Bee Window manufacturing building south of Broad Ripple received a $1.8 million rehab from TCC. Now the firm has received zoning approval from the city as part of its plans to renovate a vacant, 15,800-square-foot structure adjacent to its headquarters.

TCC wants to refurbish the building to accommodate an expansion that calls for creating up to 105 jobs by 2019.

The minority-owned company announced in October that it will invest $1.9 million to expand next door, allowing TCC to provide space for training facilities and group education classes.

TCC, which has 139 full-time employees locally, plans to hire project managers, system analysts, software developers, database administrators, information security professionals, network engineers and quality assurance staff.

The two-story building TCC plans to renovate last housed Bee Window’s office and sales operations.

TCC has been approached by several potential tenants, including retailers, restaurateurs and small-business owners, interested in occupying part of the first floor of the building, according to city filings.

The company concluded that a small restaurant would be ideal, to serve TCC and the surrounding neighborhood. A tenant has yet to be signed.

Company executives didn’t return phone calls from IBJ seeking comment on the expansion.

TCC moved last year from the Landmark Center downtown. Founded in 1997, the company provides technology and consulting services, including software development and managed hosting to businesses and government agencies.

The firm, which had $25.2 million in revenue in 2014, is co-owned by Steve Maudlin, who lives near the headquarters with his wife, Chris. Jim Pangallo and Andrew Hwang are the company’s other owners.

As part of the company’s growth plans, the Indiana Economic Development Corp. offered it up to $1.5 million in tax credits and up to $50,000 in training grants based on the company’s job-creation plans.
