MD Logistics, a third-party logistics company that works with pharmaceutical companies, will expand its Indiana operations, creating 50 new jobs in the process.
"Last year we celebrated our 20th anniversary, and a large part of our success has been a direct result of the attractive business climate the state of Indiana offers," Mark Sell, president and co-founder of MD Logistics, said. "Companies want to conduct business in Indiana because of the talented and hardworking labor force available to us. As we expand our operations in response to market demands, we are very excited to continue to grow in central Indiana.”
The company, which was founded in Indiana, plans to invest roughly $3.7 million to renovate its Plainfield operations site. The renovation will allow MD Logistics to support increasing market demands and add capacity for pharmaceutical-grade products.
"To take our state's economy to the next level, we need companies not just to locate in Indiana—but to stay and grow in our communities," Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb said in a statement. "MD Logistics is one of many Hoosier companies doing just that, and they play a vital role in making Indiana a magnet for jobs. We'll do our part by sustaining our pro-business environment and by funding a long-term plan for roads and bridges that ensures the transportation network companies like MD Logistics count on is maintained and developed for the years to come."
