Since the close of the 2012 legislative session and the passage of Right to Work, ten companies have announced plans to expand or move jobs to Indiana accounting for 778 projected new jobs and $169 million in investment.

Six of these ten companies have publicly announced that RTW was a factor in their decision making process:  

  • Steel Dynamics, Inc. (Pittsboro): “We are appreciative that Indiana continues to be a state where Steel Dynamics can expand our product offering and increase our productivity while further establishing our future in our Pittsboro home," said Barry Schneider, vice president and general manager of Steel Dynamics' engineered bar products division. "The recent enactment of the right-to-work legislation is further evidence of Indiana's commitment to providing the most competitive business environment possible for global companies like us to grow."

  • Android Industries (Fort Wayne): "Android chose Indiana and specifically Fort Wayne because it's both an employee- and employer-friendly environment," said David Donnay, vice president of human resources at Android. "Recently, Indiana became a right-to-work state and offers us a competitive location and a skilled work force to complement our state of the art technology. All of these factors went into choosing Indiana as an optimal location." Read more...
  • Busche (Albion): "The state of Indiana and the local economic development folks have shown a willingness to do what is necessary to attract businesses to our state," said Nick A. Busche, chief executive officer and president of Busche. "The recent passage of the right-to-work law was just another example of the strong commitment by this state to promote growth and job creation. Indiana offers an enthusiastic business climate and a great workforce. We believe manufacturers in Indiana can rely on Governor Daniels and his staff to support our efforts and investments."

  • SealCorpUSA (Evansville): “The first thing I’d like to do is to thank Donna Crooks, Shannon Sizemore, who I don’t think is here with GAGE and Dorrie LoBue with the IEDC for working as hard as they have in the last month to make it possible for SealCorpUSA’s expansion in Indiana and continue our growth here in Evansville," said Ken Rust, president of SealCorpUSA. "Right to Work, tax incentives and economic development programs are really the key to creating jobs and SealCorpUSA is a real company with real jobs. And because of the work GAGE and IEDC has done on this project, SealCorp is making the commitment to create more jobs for the next 10 years here in Evansville, Ind. Thank you.” Read More...

"All of this provides the perfect setting for Whayne Supply's growth plans and made our decision to continue to invest in southwest Indiana an easy one." Read More...
  • Professional Transportation, Inc. (Evansville): "PTI gave careful consideration when evaluating where to expand its transportation services with the Coach acquisition," said Steve McClellan, vice president of PTI.
