Those businesses plan to create up to 17,823 new jobs and invest more than $5.4 billion in operations statewide, reported the Journal Gazette. That makes 2017 Indiana’s third-largest year for committed investment since the IEDC was created in 2005, officials said.

Eric Holcomb said in a statement Friday. “With an unwavering focus on taking Indiana to the next level, we will continue to grow our economy by developing our workforce, investing in infrastructure and delivering great government service to ensure that Indiana is a hub for innovation and a magnet for jobs.”
