Indiana worksState Senator Randy Head released details on the state’s economics for 2017.  He said, “This year was record breaking for economic development in our state.”

Since the year began, the Indiana Economic Development Corporation has secured 270 commitments from businesses in and out of our state to grow or locate in Indiana. Together, they plan to create nearly 29,000 new Hoosier jobs that have an average hourly wage of $27.38, which is more than 27 percent higher than Indiana’s average wage.

Some of the companies planning to develop or locate in Indiana are Infosys, Axiscades, HMD Trucking, Beijing West Industries and Toyota Motor Manufacturing of Indiana.
