Tech distribution giant Ingram Micro opens Plainfield facility, plans 151 jobs

Technology products distributor Ingram Micro said Wednesday that it has opened a 200,000-square-foot processing center in Plainfield, where it plans to employ 151 people by the end of 2023.

The Irvine, California-based company said facility, called an IT asset disposition processing center, will be its sixth facility in the state.

The company said it is spending nearly $4.8 million to lease and equip the building at 2675 Reeves Road, southwest of Indianapolis International Airport along Interstate 70. The facility will offer a range of technology disposition services, including data erasure and drive destruction, processing, remarketing and recycling.

Ingram Micro said it has already hired 80 employees at the center. It will continue to fill office, supervisory, warehouse and management positions.

The center is one of four IT asset disposition processing centers the company operates in the United States. The others are in Indianapolis, Arizona and New Jersey.

The Plainfield center will nearly triple IT asset disposition processing capacity for the company in central Indiana.

The Indiana Economic develop Corp. offered Ingram Micro up to $975,000 in conditional tax credits based on the job-creation plans. The incentives hinge on the company’s ability to meet hiring goals.

The town of Plainfield offered additional incentives at the request of Hendricks County Economic Development Commission.

Ingram Micro opened a $40 million, 590,000-square-foot distribution center in Jeffersonville last year that is expected to employ 550 people by 2021. It also has logistics operations in Indianapolis and Plainfield.

The company’s global operations include 154 logistics centers and 23 service centers collectively covering 16.2 million square feet in more than 50 countries

It employs about 2,000 full-time and seasonal workers at its Indiana facilities and 30,000 around the world.

Ingram Micro established its presence in Indiana in 2012 by acquiring Indianapolis-based mobile-device distributor Brightpoint Inc. for about $840 million.
