Apple plans to invest $100 million to build a new state-of-the-art distribution center in central Indiana as a part of its Advanced Manufacturing Fund.
The announcement is part of the company’s expansion in multiple parts of the country totaling $430 billion.
Gov. Eric Holcomb said in a statement that the state’s, “business-friendly ecosystem continues to bring innovative, cutting-edge companies like Apple to the Hoosier state.”
The Indiana site will help Apple “accelerate delivery timelines and personalization,” according to the company’s news release.
The facility will be located in Hendricks County and bring about 500 new jobs to the area in the next 4 years. XPO Logistics will oversee operations. XPO Logistics Europe CEO Malcolm Wilson said in a statement that they are, “thrilled to join Apple in creating hundreds of jobs in this next-generation distribution center.”
Luke Bosso, Indiana Economic Development Corporation chief of staff, said this is Apple’s first major investment in the state.
“And we know that once they are here, they’re going to love the environment; love being in Indiana; love our talent; love our interstates; love our airport and we hope it will just continue to grow over time,” said Bosso.
The Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered XPO Logistics up to $5 million in conditional tax credits for the job creation plan.
