The company appreciates Indiana’s emphasis
With plans to break ground this month and begin operations immediately in a leased location nearby, the company plans to increase its U.S. production to match the scope of its European operations within the next five to seven years.
“Ultimately, we chose Indiana because of its low tax climate and pro-business policies,” Phillip Stoller, vice president of HALDRUP USA, said in a prepared statement. Stoller also said the company appreciates Indiana’s emphasis on “creating healthy families,” which leads to productive employees.
HALDRUP, which currently employs nearly 170 associates worldwide, has already begun hiring for sales, clerical, field service, technical service, engineering, manufacturing and logistics positions in Indiana.
The news release did not provide a pay range for the new jobs, although Gov. Mike Pence in a statement was enthusiastic about the impact.
“Another German investment in Indiana means our economy is growing and more jobs are coming to the Hoosier State,” Pence said.
“German companies like HALDRUP thrive here because our workforce is a lot like the German workforce – hardworking and skilled in manufacturing. Add in Indiana’s strategic Midwest location and affordable cost of doing business, and German companies find what they need to thrive in Indiana.”
