Direct Connect Logistix Expands Indianapolis HQ
- Jan 08, 2018
Direct Connect Logistix has moved into its newly expanded Indianapolis headquarters. The project began in 2016 and cost the company more than $2 million, including several interior upgrades and new equipment. The 14,000-square-foot office will allow DCL to nearly double its team to 170 employees by the end of 2020.
The city of Indianapolis has supported the project at the request of Develop Indy, a business unit of the Indy Chamber. Thus, the Indiana Economic Development Corp. covered part of the project costs—approximately $700,000—through performance-based tax credits and training grants.
The office is located at 314 W. Michigan St. and features an open design on the ground floor, red accents, abundant light and a contemporary mural of the city. It also provides nearly 170 workstations. The design allows DCL to triple its footprint if needed.
“Remaining in downtown Indianapolis and expanding our presence was a logical step as we look to attract and hire an energetic and diverse workforce,” said Greg Humrichhouser, co-founder & president of DCL. According to data provided by Yardi Matrix, the city has been enjoying steady economic growth which has kept unemployment at 2.9 percent, well below the U.S. average.
