Fishers mainstay Reynolds Farm Equipment is building an $8 million headquarters on U.S. 31 north of Westfield, moving the company’s agricultural operation closer to its rural customer base.
The sprawling 63,000-square-foot building at 1451 E. 276th St. in Atlanta will replace Reynolds’ location in Sheridan, seven miles away. President Gary Reynolds said the company has outgrown the small shop.
“This will be the largest facility in the company,” he said. Reynolds also has shops in Fishers, Anderson, Lebanon, Mooresville and Muncie, in addition to specialty golf-and-turf operations in Ohio and Kentucky.
The high-profile Fishers location along State Road 37 will focus on lawn-and-garden and light-construction business, Reynolds said. Staff there also will continue to handle the company’s growing Internet sales.
Reynolds’ new headquarters will include training space for up to 50 employees, he said, plus a repair shop and the farm-equipment sales operation.
Noblesville-based Peterson Architecture is overseeing the project design.
Work has begun on the 15-acre site, and Reynolds expects to move in after Thanksgiving. Employees will transfer from Sheridan and Fishers, he said.
“I’m sure before it’s all said and done, we’ll have to hire some more,” he said.
Reynolds has about 225 employees company-wide.
