In 2004, the company first opened operations in Richmond, a location which expanded several times and grew to employ more than 200 people. At its new headquarters, Osborn expects to create more than 30 new jobs. Along with its current 180,000-sq-ft Richmond facility, Osborn plans to construct a 7,400-sq-ft addition in late 2015.
The unification of all departments at the new headquarters will also allow Osborn to increase the frequency of distributor and end-user training at the Richmond facility.
Osborn’s relocation is a part of a growing trend of businesses expanding into Indiana. The state’s central location and abundance of skilled laborers made Richmond a strong hub for Osborn’s manufacturing presence in the Midwest.
“Indiana has developed into a booming home for business,” said Governor Mike Pence. “Companies choose to grow here—and in the case of Osborn, move their headquarters here—because the Hoosier State offers the affordable business climate and skilled workforce they need to thrive.”
