Entry Description
INDIANAPOLIS (June 5, 2013) – Miller Pipeline, LLC, a company specializing in pipeline installation, announced plans today to expand its headquarters here, creating up to 48 new jobs by 2016.

The company, which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Indiana-based Vectren Corporation (NYSE: VVC), will invest $5.3 million to construct and equip a facility to support its operations nationwide on its 34-acre Indianapolis campus. The 52,000 square-foot facility, which will be fully operational by 2014, will house maintenance and fabrication shops, material handling and shipping areas, a training center and administrative support offices.

“In Indiana we are focused on building a healthy and sustainable business environment based on low taxes and fiscal stability,” said Eric Doden, president of the Indiana Economic Development Corporation. “The Hoosier State is proud that Miller Pipeline has chosen Indianapolis as a fixture in its long-term business plans, and we look forward to watching them continue to grow in the years to come.” 

Miller Pipeline, which currently has 125 full-time employees at its Indianapolis headquarters, 600 employees in Indiana and more than 3,000 employees nationally, plans to begin hiring new associates in Indianapolis later this year.

“We decided to expand our Indianapolis headquarters to reflect the developments we are seeing within the shale gas and infrastructure pipeline replacement markets,” said Doug Banning, chief executive officer of Miller Pipeline. “Indiana has been a great place to do business, and we look forward to our continued growth, job creation and being a good community partner.” 

Founded as a family-owned business in 1953 and entering Indiana’s pipeline market in 1961, Miller Pipeline specializes in the installation of natural gas, water and sewer system underground pipelines. With six facilities in Indiana and operations in 21 other states, the company serves local natural gas and oil distributors as well as water and wastewater municipalities across the country.

The Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered Miller Pipeline, LLC up to $200,000 in conditional tax credits and up to $200,000 in training grants based on the company’s job creation plans. These tax credits are performance-based, meaning until Hoosiers are hired, the company is not eligible to claim incentives. The city of Indianapolis approved additional tax abatement at the request of Develop Indy, a business unit of the Indy Chamber.

“This announcement keeps Indianapolis at the forefront of the rapidly growing natural gas and clean energy industry,” said Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard. “The additional jobs and investment by Miller Pipeline reaffirms that Indianapolis is a great place for business."

Miller Pipeline is among a growing number of businesses expanding their headquarters in Indiana. This year 30 companies have made plans to expand or relocate their headquarters here, accounting for more than 3,360 projected new jobs and $242 million in capital investment.

About IEDC
Created in 2005 to replace the former Department of Commerce, the Indiana Economic Development Corporation is governed by a 12-member board chaired by Governor Mike Pence. Victor Smith serves as the Indiana Secretary of Commerce and Eric Doden is the president of the IEDC. 

The IEDC oversees programs enacted by the General Assembly including tax credits, workforce training grants and public infrastructure assistance. All tax credits are performance-based. Therefore, companies must first invest in Indiana through job creation or capital investment before incentives are paid. A company who does not meet its full projections only receives a percentage of the incentives proportional to its actual investment. For more information about IEDC, visit www.iedc.in.gov.
