Epson America, Inc. (Long Beach, Calif.) announced plants to construct a new distribution facility in Plainfield, Ind., a suburb of Indianapolis. The new 750,000-square-foot facility will handle warehousing and distribution, a repair depot and parts and accessories for the manufacturer and marketer of printers and imaging products. Construction will start in July and should be complete by April 2006. Employees will relocate from an existing 462,000-square-foot Indianapolis facility.
"Because of the growth in our business, we have outgrown our current facility," said John Lang, Epson president and CEO. "The expansion will enable more efficiencies in our business operations while contributing to the economic viability of Indianapolis."
Epson finalized the construction site negotiations and plans with assistance from Grubb & Ellis Company, the Hendricks County Economic Development Partnership, the Town of Plainfield, the State of Indiana, the not-for-profit Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC), The Indy Partnership, and Panattoni Development Company, LLC. Epson is represented by Colliers Turley Martin Tucker (CTMT) and Grubb & Ellis Company.
