Mooresville-based Creative Works, which designs, manufactures and installs themes, props and attractions for the amusement industry, plans to invest $7 million in relocating to the Park Fletcher industrial complex on Indianapolis’ southwest side in May.

Creative Works will bring with it more than 70 jobs, and the firm expects to create up to 30 more by the end of the year. The move comes as the company prepares to celebrate its 25th anniversary this year.

Creative Works produces attractions such as laser tag arenas, escape rooms, miniature golf courses, virtual reality installations and e-sports facilities for family entertainment centers, sports complexes, casinos and cruise ships, among others.

The company also designs custom themes and signage for a variety of businesses, including restaurants, bars and museums.

The new location for Creative Works totals 69,000 square feet. President Armando Lanuti calls Indianapolis the “perfect home” for the company.

“We’ll be close to one of the best airports in the country, we can tap into the incredible talents of the Indy labor pool, and the city’s infrastructure for commerce will allow us to better serve businesses at home and abroad,” Lanuti said in a media release. “Our new location allows us to expand our design and manufacturing capabilities, making Indianapolis an epicenter for custom theming work around the world.”

As it moves to the new Indy location, the firm plans to fill a variety of positions, including jobs in customer success, tech support, tech integration, marketing, carpentry, mural painting and traveling installation.

In October 2019, Creative Works detailed plans to invest more than $1 million to expand its Mooresville location and create up to 70 jobs by the end of this year.
