Endress+Hauser and its sales and service partner, George E. Booth Co., broke ground on a 106,000-sq.-ft office and light industry facility in Greenwood, IN. The facility will house Endress+Hauser’s projects and solutions, human resources, and legal departments, as well as a Design and Innovation Studio for early education and workforce development.
“We are thrilled to expand our roots and footprint in Greenwood, the community we’ve been a part of for almost 50 years,” said Todd Lucey, general manager, Endress+Hauser USA. “Our continued investments showcase our commitment to Johnson County, our dedicated employees and our valued customers. The City of Greenwood has been a wonderful partner and collaborator over the years, and we take pride in investing in areas and locations where our team members live, work and play.”
There will be 190 employees at the facility over the next decade. Of those positions, 95 will be new to Johnson County, including 50 immediate jobs from the relocation of George E. Booth Co. Endress+Hauser plans to add 75 more jobs over the next 10 years, while George E. Booth Co. plans to add 20 jobs in the same timeframe.
“We are excited to partner with our principal, Endress+Hauser, to bring both teams under one roof on their Greenwood campus,” said Scott Young, president, George E. Booth Co. “Being strategically located in Greenwood will bring us closer to our partners which will drive growth and collaboration to implement improved solutions for our customers. We could not be more thrilled to call the City of Greenwood our new home.”
As part of the Design and Innovation Studio, approximately 2,500 sq.-ft will be dedicated to STEM, allowing K-8 educators to visit the company’s campus for field trips and extracurricular enrichment. In addition, the Design and Innovation Studio will house a smart classroom and maker space. In cooperation with Purdue Indiana Next Generation Manufacturing Competitiveness Center (IN-MaC), students will be equipped with Industry 4.0 technology and other cutting-edge innovations. High school students also will have the opportunity to use the studio’s 3D printing, robotics, Spheros, Little Bits, engineering and science modules, and coding tools.
The project will include many sustainable elements including geothermal heating and cooling, a solar panel-covered roof, rain gardens, and permeable pavers.
“Endress+Hauser has been a longstanding partner and contributor to the Greenwood community,” said Greenwood Mayor Mark W. Myers. “This expansion will bring significant investment to the city and cement Greenwood as the center for US strategic initiatives and continued growth for the family-owned company.”
Construction of the facility is expected to be completed in the summer of 2025.
