Flexware Innovation currently employs more than 60 degreed engineers, including employees at its two Indiana locations as well as remote workers across the U.S. The company is currently hiring for business intelligence and software developers, as well as automation and computer integrated manufacturing engineers. These new positions are expected to offer average salaries 75 percent higher than the Hamilton County average wage. Interested applicants may apply online.
Founded in 1996, Flexware Innovation assists Fortune 500 clients, including some of the state’s most prominent manufacturing companies. This technology integration firm offers software development, automation engineering, business intelligence, MES (Manufacturing Execution Systems) and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) consulting. Their clients include those within life sciences, pharmaceutical, industrial manufacturing, steel, and food and beverage industries.
With Indiana being such a Manufacturing hotspot, Flexware is passionate about helping these companies thrive by delivering solutions that help them track products, increase output, adopt digital manufacturing solutions, and ultimately remain competitive.
Scott Whitlock, President and CEO of Flexware notes,
Indiana has done such a wonderful job of making our state a place that manufacturing companies can flourish. Couple that with Fishers’ investments in technology firms like Flexware, and we are in a perfect location to continue to attract talent and live out our passion for helping manufacturing companies. We can’t thank the State and City enough for investing in us in this way.”
The IEDC offered Flexware Innovation Inc. up to $1,000,000 million in conditional tax credits and up to $112,500 in training grants based on the company’s job creation plans. These incentives are performance based, meaning until Hoosiers are hired, the company is not eligible to claim incentives. The city of Fishers supports this project.
Flexware’s dedication to innovation and growth is a great example of the thriving entrepreneurial spirit in Fishers,” said Fishers Mayor Scott Fadness. “As a result of today’s announcement and as a founding partner in the upcoming IoT Lab, they’ll continue leading technological innovation right here in Fishers.”
Last month, Governor Eric J. Holcomb announced a record-breaking year for economic development in Indiana. In 2017, so far, 270 businesses across all industries have committed to creating nearly 29,000 new Hoosier jobs in the coming years – an all-time high since the IEDC was established in 2005.
