Meyer Distributing Inc., Jasper, Ind., announced plans to expand its headquarters, creating up to 109 new jobs by the end of 2016.
The company, which supplies wholesale aftermarket products to various sectors in the automotive industry, plans to invest $23.37 million to centralize and expand its operations and warehouse space in Jasper to support its national distribution network. It currently has more than 195 full-time employees at its three Indiana locations in Jasper, Indianapolis and Elkhart, according to a news release.
“In 2005 when Indiana launched ‘Major Moves,’ we knew that these infrastructure improvements would bring new jobs and development across the state and particularly to southwest Indiana,” said Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels. “Meyer Distributing’s decision to expand in Jasper further solidifies the Hoosier State’s reputation as a hub for logistics and transportation companies.”
Gov. Daniels launched “Major Moves,” a 10-year transportation plan to improve and expand Indiana’s highway infrastructure, in 2005. The announcement of Meyer Distributing’s decision to expand its Dubois County operations adds to Indiana’s growing transportation and logistics industry, the release stated.
As part of the project, Meyer Distributing will grow its presence to six buildings, bringing its total footprint in Jasper to more than 500,000 sq. ft. The company immediately began hiring new associates from across the company, including distribution, warehouse, drivers, logistics, administration and marketing.
