INDIANAPOLIS (May 1, 2014) – Governor Mike Pence joined executives from Interactive Intelligence Group Inc. (Nasdaq: ININ), a global provider of business communications software and services, today to announce the company’s plans to expand its headquarters here, creating up to 430 new high-wage jobs across the state by 2016.
The homegrown-Hoosier company is in negotiations to lease and equip a new 112,000 square-foot office building with a total cost of approximately $28 million to be constructed on its campus on the northwest side of Indianapolis. The company currently occupies nearly 300,000 square feet spanning four buildings. Construction is anticipated to begin this summer, with the new facility expected to open its doors in the third quarter of 2015.
“Hoosiers are driving the future of technology, with a tech community that’s strong and fueled by impressive homegrown success stories like that of Interactive Intelligence’s,” said Pence. “In Indiana, high-tech companies gain an advantage over their competition with a business climate that is affordable and a talented workforce at their fingertips. We’ve built Indiana into a state that works, designed to poise companies for days like today, where the future is bright with opportunity.”
