More jobs projected for Brookville

(Continued)

BATESVILLE —

MBC Group “will also expand its digital printing operations currently outsourced with the addition of printing, kitting and fulfillment for point-of-purchase materials. Once the new production lines are operational, the company projects to handle more than $10 million of packaging, digitally printed materials and contract labor for its customers annually.”

Brookville got on Holloway’s radar after a friend introduced him to Franks, former CEO of J and J Packaging, which was sold and then consolidated at its  Sunman facility.

The president noted, "With its low tax environment, robust infrastructure, superb logistic support network and right-to-work status, Indiana was a no-brainer location for us. As a business owner, I am very appreciative of Governor Daniels' initiatives in our state that allow us to envision robust future growth potential as our country moves forward."

At the gathering, the governor said, “We all know the magic and genius of the American economy has always been the small companies that became big.

“I’m really happy we’re … in Brookville, one of our modest-sized … and oldest communities. I’ve said so often we have dug ground for 2,000-person factories, we’ve done deals that literally have involved hundreds of million of dollars. I am frankly more excited when a company like this comes to a town of this size… it will make a difference in Brookville.”

According to Mike Biltz, town council president, Brookville “is composed of hard-working people with solid values and principles. It is truly fantastic that the MBC Group recognizes this attribute and has faith in our people and community."

Holloway reported that state and local incentives were “instrumental in our decision to even go down this road.”

IEDC offered the firm up to $625,000 in conditional tax credits and up to $100,000 in training grants based on its job creation plans. “These tax credits are performance-based, meaning until Hoosiers are hired, the company is not eligible to claim incentives.”

The county and town councils will consider additional property tax abatement at the request of the Franklin County Economic Development Commission.
