“As a hub for distribution, we welcome Solutions 2 GO to Indy,” said Brian Gildea, vice president and executive director of Develop Indy, a business unit of the Indy Chamber. “Leveraging our central location, warehouse inventory, and eager workforce, Indy was able to beat out other cities across the nation for their expansion. As Indy’s distribution sector continues to grow, more and more companies see the value of being close to such distribution centers which only leads to growth in other areas of focus like advanced manufacturing, life science, and technology.”
The Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered Solutions 2 GO, LLC up to $200,000 in conditional tax credits and up to $17,500 in training grants based on the company’s job creation plans. These tax credits are performance-based, meaning until Hoosiers are hired, the company is not eligible to claim incentives. The city of Indianapolis supports the project at the request of Develop Indy, a business unit of the Indy Chamber.
“As the Crossroads of America, Indiana is a state that works for the logistics industry,” said Victor Smith, Indiana Secretary of Commerce. “Distributors searching for a centralized location take full advantage of Indiana’s robust transportation network, where companies can access more than 80 percent of the country’s population within one day’s drive. This is why so many products on store shelves today once traveled through the Hoosier State.”
Indiana is within one day’s drive to more than 20 major metropolitan markets, making the state a perfect place for growing companies like Solutions 2 GO to establish their distribution facilities. Eight interstate highways with more than 11,000 total miles connect Indiana to the rest of the country, complimented by four international airports, three state-of-the art international maritime ports, and more than 4,000 miles of active railway tracks.
