Republic Services brings more than 450 jobs to Indiana
INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Republic Services Inc. announced Thursday that they will create a shared services center in Fishers.
The center will create up to 469 jobs by 2025, according to the release.
“When industry leaders like Republic Services consider where to grow, Indiana is at the top of the list,” said Governor Mike Pence. “Indiana’s national reputation as a leading state for doing business has helped the Hoosier State add more than 140,500 private sector jobs in the last three years, with nearly 60 percent of those jobs paying above the state’s average wage. Today, I’m proud to welcome Republic Services’ expansion as it furthers this trend with plans to add hundreds of quality, middle-management jobs to the Indiana economy, leveraging our state’s affordable business climate and our dedicated, skilled Hoosier workforce.”
Republic Services will spend $13.6 million to lease an office building at 10194 Crosspoint Blvd. in Fishers.
“Republic Services’ move to Fishers is very exciting and a testament to our commitment to bring good jobs to our community,” said Fishers Mayor Scott Fadness. “By locating in Concourse at Crosspoint along I-69, Republic Services has chosen an easily accessible, top-tier office space that will help attract a talented workforce and spur future development in the area. It is a perfect fit for an industry leader like Republic Services, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome them to the community.”
The Indiana Economic Development Corporation is offering the company $4.5 million in tax credits based on the job creation plans. The company cannot claim the tax benefits until Hoosiers are hired.
